Could you point out some areas in which documentation is lacking?  I
understand that there are many areas that could use more
documentation, but having a list would be something nice to work off

Before hearing about MINA I had built my own NIO toolkit which drew upon the ideas from SEDA.

at best and should be expanded. I have read all of the materials and can build applications

(i.e. DemuxingProtocolCodecFactory etc...).

the MINA source to understand deeper what it is capable of -- as well as how to solve certain
problems. This would require substantial resources which would not fit our development plans.
It is somewhat unreasonable to expect users of a component to study it's implementation in
order to learn how to use it effectively.
