Hello Chloé,
Thanks for your feedback.

You have an official list here 
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OFBIZ/Apache+OFBiz+User+List.

For the documentation, a contributor group work on refresh it.

Currently, at Nereide we deploy OFBiz on international trade projet. If 
you want you can contact me directly in french.

Have a nice days,

Nicolas
