Sorry we didn't put it where you looked. In general I usually recommend looking at core documentation
in addition to FAQs, it provides context for the more free-form, supplementary nature of FAQs.

I've changed the FAQ entry [1] to point to the core documentation. (Note that changes are
not immediately visible.)

Feel free to file a CLA and contribute to the documentation or file JIRA issues against existing
documentation; input and contributions are helpful and appreciated (even more so without sniping
and implied obligation :)

You lost me there; once an element (interceptor, stack, whatever) is defined it's available
to subsequent elements. The <package...> documentation [2] describes the use of the
"extends" attribute and states:

"The extends attribute is optional and allows one package to inherit the configuration of
one or more previous packages - including all interceptor, interceptor-stack, and action configurations."
