	I know what you mean, but in open source communities everything is done
by people with little time on their hands, so if you want something done
you basically have to do it yourself. You can't really compare it to a
proprietary system filled with meticulous docs and customer
requirements. It evolves as much as its designed.

	The basic design of the libraries is basically done, so there is no use
for such things for the developers. The only use is for learners, so
perhaps you could put together such things as you learn yourself. Thats
what I'm doing. GNOME would be grateful for you efforts!!
