Don't you think that this is going about it backwards -- asking the
person that needs help to provide it?  We need people that already have
the expertise to either write tutorials or to collaborate with a
'ghostwriter' to do it.

Someone asked on KDE-Devel for help with KAuth and a developer suggested
to him:

It just doesn't make sense.  Are users are supposed to ferret out the 
information and write the documentation when the developers have this 
information and appear to be keeping it secret?  Perhaps his blog has 
some useful information, but the KDE Bugzilla is not a place to provide 
assistance or to look for documentation.
