Well, traditionnaly, we had Bruce to sort those things out. But in this
case the problem is not so much about writing documentation than
deciding where to put it and what to explain exactly. I think.
Anyway saying the patch can not be considered by a commiter for only
lack of complete documentation is not a policy here, IME. It can happen,
but I would consider it bad news if it were to become a way to force the
release timeframe. What is hard is doing *good* compromises.
