I actually remember looking at what I believe may have been an earlier
version of this document, back when I was getting started with DSpace
(just about a year ago). I believe I stumbled across it (or a similar
document) within your Theses Alive! site archives. I hadn't really seen
the updates to it since then. It looks good and very informative!
Maybe in the short term, it'd be good to figure out a better way to
organize these various custom DSpace guides (our customization "How To
Guide", your "Developers Documentation Guide", etc.), so that newcomers
to the DSpace community know they are out there and available. Maybe
it's just me, but even I have difficulty locating things within the
Wiki, on occasion.
Perhaps (if one of the MIT folks agrees to it) we could link a
"DSpaceGuides" page off of the main Wiki page? Or, alternatively, I
guess I could start a "DSpaceCustomization" page, which mirrors the
"DSpaceDeveloping" page (http://wiki.dspace.org/DspaceDeveloping), but
deals more with just making local customizations to DSpace (rather than
developing patches). Thoughts/Ideas?

Yes, they do. Maybe that isn't so good for a repository system, afterall :)
