Thanks for bringing this up. As a new member, you have the unique opportunity
to articulate what you find missing... nobody than a new person can see what
new persons need!

I'd like to focus this discussion first on the needs (requirements), and once
we have those we can think about the mechanics of how to communicate them.

I also think, that we should list these needs in a persona-based fashion, i.e.
what does a new Committer need to know / a new project lead / a new council

I really like your points about "Discussion Culture" and "Dos and Donts" -- a
kind of Eclipse Netiquette. Things that are obvious for people long enough at
Eclipse, but nowhere written down. Perhaps we should start something like that
-- anybody care filing a bug for creating an Eclipse Netiquette?

In terms of "Getting Started" links, here is my first stab at collecting some.
We might eventually place them on the Wiki "Architecture Council/Getting

    That's Bjorn's persona-based bible. I just love it, and use it almost 
    every day to find my way into important documents. Wayne's new 
    Community Development page is also linked in here.

    The Planet is a must-have if you want to be "plugged in" to the Community.
    Read it with an RSS Reader (I'm using Thunderbird).

    Another place which I use almost daily.

    Even if you are not on galileo, reading the must-do's is interesting since
    it covers what's being expected from Mature projects.

    Our own pages should, of course, be the main resource for newcomers to
    understand our own policies and operations. There's certainly need to 
    work on this for improving it.

Does that help? - If there is other unanswered points or open questions please
list them here! Also, note that everybody can edit the Wiki to clarify things
or add items. That's how a Wiki works -- "Owners" of Wiki pages will "Watch"
the pages to make sure that new additions are appropriate.

Do others have other links or ideas to add?
