         I found this paragraph on the web site:


Extend the documentation and write "how-to"s

Since the main OpenCms documentation is now HTML-based and managed as 
OpenCms modules, it's easy to extend it. Perhaps you've faced challenges in 
setting up or customizing OpenCms in special environments or according to 
special requirements. If so, we suggest [that you] write a How-To module 
about this topic and make it available on the Modules download section 
using the ["Add-a-module"] download form.


See http://www.opencms.org/opencms/en/development/contribute.html (half-way 
down the page).

         Because documentation can be written as a module, it can be made 
available as a module using the URL I mentioned in my last message. I do 
not know, however, whether writing a documentation module is easy -- it 
could be hard.
