The documentation is part of the project, and it is one of the most

BTW, I will say it once and never repeat it after: I will certainly put
things and say things rather roughly when I analyze and criticize the
way things have happened. It is in no way a criticism on the individuals
it is just the constatation that with any project, despite the quality
of the persons, if the contributions are not planned and coordonnated,
the time spent is lost.

In no way I will proclam that I'm omniscient and "error free". No: I 
make errors and will continue till the end. I'm simply trying to learn,
that is to make new ones.
