 ### How do I report problems I see while using cTAKES?
 Submit issues using [JIRA][4]. Anyone may read the issues. You must be a contributor to add
or edit issues.
-###I've just been voted in as a Committer.  What do I need to do?
-First, congratulations.  Your contributions to the project have been noted and we 
-hope that as a Committer you will be even more active.
-But before you are officially given Committer permissions, there are a few 
-administrative steps that you will need to complete. 
- 1. Submit a signed [ICLA] [11] to Apache.
- 1. Wait for the ICLA to be received and recorded by Apache.  You will know 
-when this has occurred when your name appears in the [Unlisted ICLAs] [12] section 
-on the Apache Committers page.  This could take a couple of days, longer if you
-submitted the ICLA via post.
- 1. Once the your ICLA has been recorded, you should send a note to the [PPMC] [13] 
-and request an Apache account.  You will want to include your full name and email address,

-as you entered in the ICLA, as well as your preferred userid.  Please [check first] [14]

-that your preferred userid is not already in use by another Apache Committer.
- 1. Once your Apache account has been created, you will receive an email with
-further instructions for setting up your account.  This may take a couple of days.
- 1. If you were also voted as a PPMC member, you should then [subscribe] [15] to the 
-PPMC's private mailing list.
- 1. Finally, you should read the ["Guide for new committers"] [16]
 ###How does the cTAKES project manage the trunk, tags, and branches in SVN?
   - Trunk - Developers should checkout code from the trunk if they will be contributing code
to cTAKES. Realize that this could be unstable at any point in time. You could use a stable
tag and then when it comes time to check in you would checkout from trunk and merge into there.

   - Branches - cTAKES uses SVN branches for major releases and one-off attempts at major
functions. One-off attempts may or may not be merged back into the trunk in the future. Checkout
from a branch only if you know you are part of that feature. 
   - Tags - cTAKES uses SVN tags to delineate release candidates, betas, major releases and
any other stable points in time off of the trunk. You should only checkout from a tag as the
release manager or for bug fixes going into patch releases.
-###How do I edit this website?
-The quickest and most common way is to use the Apache CMS (wmd editor) from your browser.
If you are a committer, save this link ([Apache CMS Editor][5]) as a bookmark. While on a
page, like this one, just click on the bookmark. You will enter the edit/commit/publish environment.
Tips on the less obvious:
-- If you are not a committer, you can still use the same bookmark by signing in as *anonymous*.
See detailed how-to steps in the [Apache CMS Reference][6] for non-committers.
-- The Submit button alone does not commit your changes. Use the Quick Commit checkbox.
-- There is no Cancel button or link; simply close any web page you have open.
-- Committed changes go to [Staged] but you have to wait for it before you publish. There
is a similar delay when you [Publish].
-- Use the [Apache CMS Reference][7] for anything more.
-The pages on this website are written in [markdown syntax][8] and stored in SVN at 
-- Tables can be generated however each cell must be a single line of characters (no end of
-- Tables can include HTML so long as it is all on one line.
-It is possible to edit, stage and publish website updates from the command line as well.
Information on deeper website development is found on the [Website Development][10] page.
-###How do I add image or files to a page on this web site?
-Add the image or document to SVN first. Enter edit mode on any page and click the "ctakes"
link (upper-right). Select [Edit] next to *doc/* or *images/*.
-You must type a name in the *Add New File or Directory:* field first, then press Enter. Upload
your file. Use Quick Commit and Sumbit. Stage and publish as you do a web page. 
-Go back to editing the page of interest. Add this code for images and documents respectively:
-    :::markdown
-    ![Enter alt text](images/MyImage.format)
-    [Text for link](docs/MyDoc.format)
-###How do I get help from technical people at Apache for problems with our distribution lists
or web sites etc?
-Ultimately you can [issue a ticket][17] with the Apache infrastructure team, but they have
a [web page][18] for you to decide the best course of action.
