There exists different type of "development":
- changing the core
- using AOO in other applications
- adding functionality to AOO via extensions and macros

Your text addresses only "changing the core". That is likely correct, 
when someone reaches that page following a hierarchical instruction. But 
nowadays pages are more often found by searching.

So my suggestion is, to make a short page for the other type of 
development and add at the beginning of your text, the target audience 
of your page and a reference to the other page.

I don' know, whether an introduction page for the other kind of 
development already exist. But it should contain hints to:
- existence and download of SDK
[-, if it 
will be continued]

The section 'Other Useful Resources' should have a link to
However, they seem to need revision and additions. But they are useful 
for newcomer nevertheless.

A hint to Doxygen for LibreOffice. The tool is helpful and it would be 
nice to have a similar thing for AOO. If a module has it, you can get it 
when you click on the module name in and 
then on 'Doxygen'. Try it for example with module 'sd'.

Kind regards
