At the Mapbender Development sprint we agreed that we should start 
commenting Mapbender code more thoroughly. Marc Jansen spearheaded this 
initiative, volunteering to start commenting some PHP classes. Thanks 
for your enthusiasm, Marc.

I recommend you start with the following PHP classes as I consider them 
not to need a redesign in the near future:


I recommend commenting the functions and their interfaces primarily.

As for JavaScript, I have already commented a file some time ago


I believe PHP Doc and JS Doc are similar; maybe we can concentrate on 
the similarities between the two, so we can use one style for both JS 
and PHP. I would be happy if we could manage to coordinate our 
commenting approach and achieve a single style.

Marc, please keep us updated; I would also be interested how turning 
these comments into a valid HTML documentation works, as I have not 
tried this with JS Doc.
