I'am a bit shy to out my ignorance...

what I'am missing (maybe I overlooked it) is an overview (maybe a sort of tree?) of how the
all the terms:
 \new Staff
 \new Voice
are (hieracial) related and how their encapsulation (<< >> and { }) works There is also the << { } \\ { } >> model for polyphony, when to use which construction?

Another point are the rules of the \relative mode when you have polyphony/chord constructions (how to use , and ' properly)

I work partly by trial&error which can be very time-consuming.

I always use the search function of the lilypond.pdf and most of the times I found an example that covers what I'am after. I find this most convenient (to work with examples) e.g. I immediatly understood the example Mats mailed me so maybe it would be a good idea to include it to the manual...

I hope this answers your question somehow...

Now that you know how it works it would be a great help for us if you
tell us what exactly have missed in the docs which prevented you from
understanding it.
