Those were brought up as two distinct ideas, completely separate from
one another, and marked as being completely separate from one another
by 1) numbered 2) points 3) no less. What is the relationship between
the two completely unconnected ideas that causes a contradiction?

Nobody, other than you, suggested that the gambas technical
documentation become something akin to a beginner's book if it were
rewritten in a better and more readable manner. Please show precisely
where in the sample page I provided that one single atom of "pure
technical" information has been made to devolve into something lesser,
let alone something approaching what you are suggesting. You can't
show such a thing because no such thing ever happened, apart from in
your imagination.

I already addressed that point. I don't see a counter-argument from
you. I only see a re-assertion of the same invalid point.

WOW! Yes! Really fantastic! And all at the expense of the users having
something they can actually use, make sense out of and become
productive. Users. Such a cheap price to pay.

> What you need to do it's a beginner book...

No. I do not need.

1) Your users need, and want, better documentation.

2) You and Benoit are too close to Gambas to write documentation that
is meaningful to others.

Neither you nor Benoit can see those points at all, nor will either of
you admit them.
