+This HowTo documentation will show the needed steps to edit the Apache OpenOffice.org
+website. This includes creation of new pages, modification, and deletion - for files
+and sub-directories.
+## How it works in general
+The website is hosted in a Content Management System (CMS). You will not edit the
+HTML pages directly. The actual edit is split into two steps:
+ 1. First you edit the content which is provided as [Markdown text][1] (mdtext).
+    This will be committed into the staging section (see the SVN commit mail with
+    your log message) and automatically build HTML files out of the the mdtext files
+    (see the commit mail with "Staging update by buildbot" as log messge).
+ 2. Second you need to publish the staging part to the production section (see the
+    commit mail with "Publishing merge to openofficeorg site by <your Apache ID>"
+    as log message).
+## What do you prefer: Working via command line or in the browser?
+### Via command line
+It is assumed that you have already checked out the code from the SVN repository
+Edit the file via your favorite editor like vi and finally commit via SVN:
+     vi myfile.mdtext
+     svn ci -m"My log message" myfile.mdtext
+Now wait a few seconds so that the entire website can be rebuilt. Then:
+    curl -sL http://s.apache.org/cms-cli | perl
+If this does not work on your local machine just do it on "people.apache.org" by
+executing this:
+    ssh -t <user>@people.apache.org publish.pl openofficeorg <your Apache ID>
+### Editing in the browser
+#### Prerequisites
+##### Browser bookmark
+Normally you see the webpage in your browser. To update this page with an
+inline-editor and little preview you need to add a link as bookmark to your browser
+(more information see [here][2]).
+Drag this [Apache CMS] [3] bookmarklet to your browser's toolbar.
+##### Apache ID
+Furthermore, you need an Apache ID to authenticate to the system.
+#### Starting
+Browse to the respective webpage or directory you would like to edit and click on
+the bookmark. Now click on the [Edit this directory] link on the top. The following
+is displayed as content from the CMS.
+#### Edit an existing webpage
+Click on the actions link [Edit] in the appropriate table cell for editing the
+favorite file. If the file is not in this directory but in a subdir, just click on
+the directory name (e.g., "docs/") to enter this directory.
+Now you should see a new webpage with a 4 fields:
+ 1. Upper left is the inline editor for text in markdown syntax.
+ 2. Upper right shows the written text as a permanent preview or as HTML source code.
+ 3. Below the editor you can enter a log message.
+ 4. Enter a general header text, e.g., the license of the entered text.
+When you have finished writing your text, check the "Log message" box, enter a
+commit message and click on [Submit].
+#### Create a new webpage
+When in the correct directory, at the top enter a name for the new text file (e.g.,
+"my-file.mdtext"). Now you enter your text (see topic above).
+#### Create new subdirectory
+When in the correct directory, at the top enter a name for the new directory (e.g.,
+"my-dir/"). Make sure you entered a trailing "/"!
+#### Delete a webpage or subdirectory
+When in the correct directory, click on the actions link [Delete] in the appropriate
+table cell and enter a commit message. Finally click on [Submit].
+#### How to put into production?
+After you have edited your files and/or directories, you need now to pubish your
+modifications into production. For this please click on the link
+[Publish site] on the top of the webpage. Enter a commit message on click on [Submit].
