[idea] a wiki page per method in the cocoa docs

  • I always find myself looking up a method in some of the cocoa documents.
    And I also lookup that method on 10 other pages (cocoadev, borkware, etc)
    to see, what can it be used for, how to make use of it, pitfalls and
    related info.

    Wouldn't it be great if Apple added a wikipage to every single method,
    where users can comment?

    I have thought this through for 2 minutes, and it seems like an ok idea.
    What do you think?

    Microsoft seems to agree, as they recently added that type of
    functionality to their API reference documentation.

    If they did this even us mortals would be able to program in
    QuickTime. ;-)

  • Discussing/debating/advocating this functionality here isn't
    appropriate.

    If you'd like to see this, please provide feedback to DTS directly.

  • This is an excellent idea, and the best example of it is PHP.net
    Everybody knows docs can be terse to the point of punishing...
