I think you missed my point.  I don't need 'new developer' documentation 
for OOP.  What I can't understand is how the documentation system itself 
works, ie, how to go about using it to contribute documentation.  (Or 
even how to install it locally, for that matter - So I use what is on 
the web or trawl through the source code (at least we have that option ) )

So it is!  I hadn't noticed that.  The FPC wiki used only to have links 
to the pdfs, IIRC.
