Subject Re: Documentation Request/Suggestion

Unfortunately, ASF procedures require every contribution to be made porpuseful and record of
this 
purpose has to be kept. In practice that means that every contribution to the project, even

documentation, has to be made by someone who either signed a contributor license agreement
(CLA) or 
(in case the contribution is small) an explicit license grant has to be made for the contribution

(when submitting JIRA patches for example, this is done by ticking the "grant license for
inclusion" 
checkbox).

So a community-driven documentation effort is out of the question unless we come up with a
system or 
procedure that complies with ASF rules.

and how can we help? community driven docs (with or without changing existing docs) sounds
like the most sensible option to me as it would lift this burden from the commiters and get
more people activly involved in growing Tapestry.
