This is the beauty of open source. If you think there is a problem, you can jump in and contribute by fixing the problem...

I agree.

IMO, if one thinks that the lack of documentation is a problem, he should make
it himself, rather than just complaining. A lot of information is already
piled up onto the GRUB wiki and this mailing list, so anybody can achieve
this work.

(Honestly, I am very pessimistic about this, because of my experience in GRUB
Legacy. In this case, many people only complained continuously for years,
although they could do themselves. So I had to write the manual myself,
merely because I was too tired to see those people any more.)
