+<p>Welcome to the Apache Community Development (ComDev) project!  This website is developed

+by volunteers to <em>help newcomers</em> to The Apache Software Foundation (ASF)
+and to our many Apache projects take their first steps towards being a <em>part of
our community</em>. </p>
+<p>Here we provide signposts to information about both
+the ASF as an organization, as well as about the over 100 different Apache project 
+communities that provide free software for the public benefit.</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
+specific projects here, but rather on the common processes and policies 
+found in most of Apache projects. Our goal is to help you
 <em>understand how the ASF works</em> and give you the confidence to participate
-more directly.</p>
+more directly in Apache projects that interest you.</p>

+to and/or send mail to to ask about that Apache project.  Most projects have at least a 
+dev@$ mailing list for technical discussions about the code, and a 
+user@ or users@ mailing list for questions about the product or features.</p>
