Possible topics for educational documents
    o A document which describes the 'ideal' way a project has to
      go to be successfully integrated into the ASF: the flow of the
      normal incubation process should be pictured
    o Glossary of important ASF terms and phrases
      (this was considered as very helpful on the reorg@ list)
    o Compact, but also encyclopedic link-directory which points
      to important info on the other ASF sites (e.g. to the Jakarta
      Charter or to the HTTPd dev pages)
    o General License-/Licensing documentation (ASL1.1, ASL2.2,
      TCK, JSPA)
