I think he meant to "reevaluate" the whole thing for Intrepid+1

One of the points I read is the lack of an offline help. There were some
guys a while ago, which wanted to start a documentation project. Is
anyone aware of any progress in this direction? I may have some time the
next weeks, which I would like to spend on such a documentation. I do
only read the mailinglists and not the MUC or IRC-channel, so maybe
there was some discussion on that, which I missed?
