Shaun, if it is any consolation another new dev recently hit the same 
problem - that is the devs here can remember discussions that have gone 
on in the past, but are only available in the archives. Keeping 
documentation up to date is very difficult in a fast moving project and 
being at a fairly early stage of development (now in 0.7-dev) we are 
still moving very fast.

We try to point to relevant mail threads and documents when possible, 
but it is always a good idea to search the archives too.

Please be assured we *are* aware of this problem, and we are starting to 
focus more upon it. I'm really pleased to see that you have offered to 
help Thorsten with the documentation of his designs for the skinning 
system - this is exactly how future devs can be helped to avoid this 

I'm sure I speak for all devs here when I say we do appreciate your 
work, I think your dissapointment was, as David said, purely because 
English is not everyones first language here and consequently we English 
speakers have to read carefully to see what is *really* being said. 
Personally I only read appreciation and constructive comment to your 
contribution, but then I am used to the way we speak here ;-)

Thanks for your great work.
