What you do not understand; we might not quite understand ourselves yet

The babl README/website, our lowest level of developer documentation
relevant to this hasn't seen much improvement during the last half decade
or so. This is generated from some static html in the docs directory of the
source code in git. One could almost start with a link to your current
write-up. I see no problem in the content our alternate versions of the
content being used different places.


Hi Pippin,

The existing babl documentation is mostly a list of formats and bit
depths available for different color spaces, yes? If there is a way I
can contribute to making the babl documentation more helpful for
people who write code that uses babl, perhaps by adding to the babl
documentation? I'll give it a try. But I don't have a grasp of what
might be unclear to whom, so an example or two would help. Is part of
what you mean perhaps issues like choosing the wrong format for ICC
profile conversions or for opening tiffs?
