 newcomers</em> to The Apache Software Foundation take their first steps on
-their way to being a <em>part of our community</em>. We do not focus on any
+their way to being a <em>part of our community</em>. </p>
+<p>We also aim to provide signposts into The Apache Software Foundation which is a
large and sometimes confusing place.</p>
+<p>We do not focus on any
 specific projects here, we focus on the common structures and processes you
 will find in the majority of ASF projects. Our goal is to help you
 <em>understand how the ASF works</em> and give you the confidence to participate
 more directly.</p>

-<p>The first rule of engaging with an open source project, not just those here
-in the ASF, is to <em>research first, ask questions second</em>. Therefore, please
-review the materials we have on this site (which admittedly are thin on the
-ground at this early stage). If you don't find what you need then ask for
-assistance on our mailing list at 
-<a href="mailto:dev@community.apache.org">dev@community.apache.org</a> (first
-subscribe by sending a mail to 
-<a href="mailto:dev-subscribe@community.apache.org">dev-subscribe@community.apache.org</a>).</p>
-<p>If you need to contact the ASF for to address an official matter you'll
-find a list of useful addresses in our <a href="contactpoints.html">Contact Points</a>
- page.</p>

-<p>This project is at a very early stage, other than the mailing list
-mentioned above we don't have many starting points for you, but here's a
-list of what we are creating - please have a look at what there is and feel
-free to ask questions so we know what parts to flesh out first.</p>

-<p>The second rule of engaging with open source projects, especially those in
-the ASF, is that <em>the more you give the more you get</em>. Most people assume
-that newcomers are unable to contribute, however, you will be surprised at
-how much you can help. Since we aim to be a place for newcomers to learn
-about the ASF as a whole and you are (probably) a newcomer <em>any feedback
-you can give or unanswered questions you can ask</em> will help us improve what
-we offer to those who come afterwards. </p>

-<p>There are many visible contributions of value in an Apache projects
-(documentation, testing, coding user support, design etc.), but there are
-also plenty of "back office" tasks that are necessary to maintain a healthy
-project. This section describes some of the activities that you can help
-with. In most cases you will need to be a committer to carry out these
-activities, although non-committers can often act in supporting roles.</p>
