Yes I agree, some parts of OFBiz definitively lack of documentation. The problems is that everybody
wants documentation but few are 
doing it... It's true that our inclination is more to create thant to document

A read something I found interesting long time ago. I'm not sure of its real value but I will
try to quickly share it with you. It 
happens that most of the Nobel Prizes are elder brothers/sisters. Most of elders reproduce
more the schema they lives in (actually 
often they are also influenced by the dominant person of the family :  their father or mother)
than their youngers. One of this 
behaviour is to collect, sort and put away as he/her see his/her parents doing (else how a
family can live in a house?). And this 
study claimed that most of the work of a Nobel Prize is not to discover but to compile and
make understandable others works (don't 
this remember some of your professors's behaviour ;o) . Of course this is not scientific and
I did not check deeply, but you can 
check around you, it's easy ;o)

So we need some elder minded persons (even if they are not really elders :o)

Thanks for you time

There are 99 different roles in the system. Does anyone have any notes on any of them? I am
finding it difficult to work out which 
role is appropriate and the effect they have on the system behavior.

Kind regards
