Hi Ralph,

IMO "you cry on the wrong grave" (not sure when it is only Czech
 proverb) - You should remember that
- RSPAMD is opensource project
- with small team of develepers
- with very complex and ambitious goal
- with rapid development

You should respect that in this environment there is no and cannot
be emphasized on accurate and up-to-date documentation. Especially
everything concerning project development.

IMO (I'm rspamd user):

- user documentation and changelogs is up-to-date and sufficiently
detailed. This is sufficient for proper use of the product.

- if you want to engage in development with some component, the right
way is to ask in advance how the problem should be solved - especially
if it's not quite obvious.

As you have seen, the immediate reactions to yours plugin announcement
was recommendations, how to do things right. IMO if you asked for
advice / assistance earlier, I believe it would be as well as provided.
