Back when he was around even lowly I contributed to his docs and considered it not only easy, but fun - I enjoyed it - even if all my contributions were eventually overwritten by Peter.

Reference documentation for "Bongo" will live inside the modules as POD.

My plan on documentation in general is to write a Dancer / Wiki::Toolkit Wiki application (already started),
but that will take a couple of months to be ready for production.

I would love to see a member of the community to take over the responsibility for Wiki on short
term. We can arrange things on the server, no problem.
