Hi Robert,

Thanks for the update.

You can actually do most of the work of updating the docs.  Perhaps we need to
update our website to describe how to do this :-)

If you want to try doing it, here's the basic idea:

Our docs are kept in SVN here:

https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/uima/site/trunk/uima-website

To update the site, you do an svn checkout of the site, and edit the affected
files in the "xdocs" subdirectory.  You can test what you did by running the
build.xml file in the top most directory, which "builds" the site by creating
corresponding files in the "docs" directory (don't edit the "docs" directory
yourself - it's generated via this process from changes in the "xdocs" directory.

When you have everything the way you want, you can create patch files from your
changes to the xdocs files, make a new Jira issue, and attach your patches.
