      Description

      It might be a good idea to add some information about the derby-user and derby-dev mailing lists to the documentation, probably near the beginning of each manual. Not everyone reads the documentation on the Apache web site, where information about the mailing lists is easy to find; some read it from a downloaded distribution.

      Currently there is one mention of the derby-user list partway through the Getting Started guide, and another in the Tools guide.

        Attaching DERBY-5515.diff, DERBY-5515.stat, and DERBY-5515.zip, with changes to the following topics:

        M src/ref/crefmpref1002477.dita
        M src/adminguide/cadminpreface30074.dita
        M src/tuning/ctunpropref1002477.dita
        M src/tools/ctoolspre29520.dita
        M src/devguide/cdevdgpref29520.dita
        M src/getstart/cgsintro.dita

        This patch makes the "About this guide" sections of most of the manuals provide consistent information about where to find more information. It somewhat rearranges the "Introduction to Derby" topic of Getting Started (in the equivalent position, as first topic in the manual) to provide the same information.

        I decided to mention only the derby-users mailing list, since that is the one most likely to be relevant to readers of the documentation.

        I will commit this patch in a day or so unless I hear otherwise.
