Not quite. See doc/setting-up.txt, which tries to explain how to set up
documentation for a module. I'm not sure it has been updated to cover
James' new Makefile stuff though.

Basically you edit your project's and and it
then builds all the docs automatically for you. You don't really need to
run gtkdoc-scan or the other scripts by hand.

You do edit the, <MODULE>-sections.txt and tmpl/* files as you say
