You raise some excellent points that are absolutely correct.
Why isn’t the documentation you want there?
Basically because it is a difficult, time-consuming job to prepare the kind of documentation you mention, and nobody really wants to do it. Having Mycenae put his hand up to co-ordinate this is a HUGE step forward, but he will need much assistance to generate the volume of documenation you are talking about.
Every time the documentation question has come up in the past, I have politely suggested that the poster get involved in writing documentation, but the invitation us usually taken as an insult! When it comes down to it, many people are happy to critique the current documentation, but very few people are willing to actually give up hours of their leisure time to write the documentation we need.
A successful Open-Source project is not just programmers writing code…
