Certainly.  The one I had in mind is the Dev Guide for Cocoon: 
http://xml.apache.org/cocoon/developing/index.html

A little poking around found these as well:

Design doc for Xalan Java 2: 
http://xml.apache.org/xalan-j/design/design2_0_0.html
Xindice Developers Guide: http://xml.apache.org/xindice/DevelopersGuide.html
Turbine has a section of their menu dedicated to Develper help, although 
it is not well organized: http://jakarta.apache.org/turbine/index.html
Slide has a developer's corner on their page too: 
http://jakarta.apache.org/slide/index.html

Basically just some documents for new contributors.  I apologize if it's 
already out there, but I looked around quite a bit.  Some things I might 
have found useful:
- Coding standards
- Feature request / bug report / patch submission process
- Design documentation esp. design decisions such as Java 1.1 
compatibility, memory footprint, dependencies, etc.

So far my only resource has been the mailing lists, and some private 
e-mails from Daniel.  I realize that this is a much smaller project than 
those I mentioned, so when I finish my project wouldn't mind putting 
some time into writing some of this stuff.
