*A general note: *
I am very happy to see these discussions here.
Lazarus is getting a level of maturity and public visibility that ask
for decent documentation at least as much as for code improvement.
Regarding the complexity of the topic (help is necessary for for the
help viewer itself (how to use), the help content itself (makeup, how
to upgrade), the language, the compiler, the IDE, the LCL, the RTL,
installable extensions, 3rd party extensions ...), it is most important
to provide the best possible tool for help viewing. Here the ability to
find the information needed (be it the most basic stuff or the most
sophisticated and seldom used feature) is the most important issue.
(IMHO this is one of the greatest advantages of Delphi.)
Regarding that help writing is not exactly fun, the best possible tools
need to be provided for supporting the help writers.
Obviously we are on a rather good way right now :)
Thanks to all contributors !
