With respect to "documentation" of open source software...

"You keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it
means." -- "The Princess Bride"

The notion that "reading the code" is the ultimate truth for
"documentation" is based on a misunderstanding at so many levels it is
hard to explain. In fact, most of the ideas don't begin to cover
"documenting the system". Fortunately, Robert Lefkowitz absolutely
illuminates the scope of the problem in these delightful talks.

For those who have not heard it, this is truly a treat.
For those who "document" this is a must-hear.
