I'm afraid this comes across as smugness. While I'm willing to do some
polishing of documentation if asked, actually writing docs for something
like PA (or NM, another bugbear of many people here) when one has no
idea how it actually works is simply not reasonable. The devels have to
shoulder this as part of the process of releasing new software, at least
in initial versions.
