[fpc-devel] FPDoc imports

In an attempt to help improve fpdoc I'm blocked in understanding the 
handling of imported modules. The content files are imported into the 
link tree, but this tree seems not to be used in finding external 

Instead packages are searched, where I could not yet figure out how 
these are constructed. When the FCL documentation is created, which 
imports package (content file) RTL, a package RTL seems to be created, 
somehow, but its content is not related to the content file. In detail 
unit System never becomes part of the RTL package?

Can somebody explain the creation and population of external packages a 
bit? What's the purpose of these packages at all, when the essential 
information about identifiers is contained in the content files?

Would it help if I try to create packages from the imports?
