and i'll just reiterate my support for that here on kde-core-devel ;-)

the big challenge is going to be getting the knowledge together. some of it is 
firmly tucked away in the my minds of certain developers and/or only 
documented fully IN THE CODE itself. it would be great, IMO, if those who 
were the authors of or are the current maintainers of these pieces of code 
were able to step forward and write, or at least serve as consultants on, the 
respective pieces that need to get written.

at the same time, this isn't just an issue for 3rd party developers. we also 
need to find a way to transfer information from our current base of active 
developers to tomorrow's base of active developers. when the codebase was 
smaller it was easier to get a handle on. as it grows and becomes more 
complex due to bug fixes and optimizations (both good things, though they 
tend to complexify code over time), it becomes increasingly important to 
document these things!

as an example: i'm slowly putting together a DESIGN file for kicker, but 
that's going to be a fairly long process. i'm discovering that while i don't 
know every single nook and cranny in kicker, it's even more opaque to the 
majority of developers around KDE today.
