I'd like to see some or more (if I missed it! smile ) internal documentation. I mean a document for programmers new to TWiki that describes the Modules, methods and inter-relationships between them at a broad level of description. Are there existing Perl tools to support creating this kind of thing? POD is at too low a level for this, I think(?). (I've not been using Perl much recently).

Obviously the code is the final authority on what is true, but I'm talking about "seeing the wood for the trees". When a new programmer has a creative suggestion, they will then know where to find the appropriate scaffolding to support it.

BlackHat: Programmers hate writing docs when they'd rather code. It will always get left to someone else to do it.

YellowHat: Making it easier for other programmers to join in and contribute will help the "open source" paradigm of "many eyes make less bugs".

RedHat: Contributing programmers will feel better supported, and more confident that they are working within the intended framework

I suggest you take a look at CodevDocumentationProject. CoreTeam - that topic is clearly hard to find - how about adding it to the menus at the top here at TWikiDotOrg?

Yes, that's the sort of thing I need. Thank you. Also, how about linking it in to the Menu you get when you start up twiki on a new system, the "Welcome to TWiki" menu which has links to the licence and other docs?
