Alan,

- From what I can tell, anyone can go to the confluence site, create an 
account, 
and start adding/modifying content.  This makes sense, because it is 
desirable for people to be able to easily join the community and help with 
documentation.  However, from what I understand about ASF policy, any 
documentation that is distributed with a release artifact can only be 
contributed by people who have signed a CLA.  So, what we've been asking for 
is to have a separate space that is limited such that only people who have 
signed a CLA have access to contribute content.  Then, that content would be 
exported and bundled with releases as official documentation.

For more information see the section titled "Can we use the autoexport site as 
part of our main web site?" at http://cwiki.apache.org/CWIKI/
