Feedback from people like you is exactly what we need! I've been around 
too long to be able to give it the fresh set of eyes someone like Kai-Uwe 
will be hitting

Ah, that's what I wanted! Where did you find that linked? We might need to 
make it more obvious

We maybe just want to add a small page that lists the Tika rules, then 
links to those other resources elsewhere in Apache for more help.

(For example, Tika always requires a jira issue for all changes, while POI 
sometimes lets small changes sneak through without one if the developer 
themselves spots it. POI is stricter on adding things to the changelog, 
Tika tends to just be for changes a user will notice, with the JIRA log 
available for details. There are others too, that's just what springs 
straight to mind)
