I think he was of the opinion that this documentation belonged on 
Maven's site. I said I'd link to
whatever page he suggested.  I got no reply.  (I'm mostly sure it was him)

reorg is closed down.  Community doesn't seem to appear here.  But here 
is the
http://www.apache.org/foundation/mailinglists.html meta mail lists AFAIK.  

This document that I'm writing is more of a technical guide for those 
special "ide developers" --
In Java, these are people who don't know what a classpath is.  In C++ it 
would be
Visual C++ developers who live in the classwizards and have never 
touched a makefile.  I'm not
sure there is a C equivilent.  My knowledge is outdated...  What 
replaced Quick C?

Its not intended as the all encompasing "apache guide" -- Several 
attempts have been made at this,
and I've not quite got the patience for arguing out TheOneTrueWay, etc. 
that such efforts generally
devolve into (sad comment on my character, but true).

however I think you're right..  some "meta" information should probably 
be linked.

Patches my friend, patches.  Do you have access to jakarta-site?  Send a 
couple patches to
general@ and I'm sure it will happen very quickly.  (Heck if you just 
ask it will probably happen).
I'm pretty sure Ted Husted was working on that...

note: this "ide developers' guide" is still in beta so its not clearly 
linked..  (As soon as I'm sure it does
more good then harm...I'll spring it more visibly on the helpless ;-) )
