[TYPO3-core] Patches requiring documentation

Hi all,

It seems that some contributors are not aware of the guidelines 
regarding Core patches and documentation that we laid out at the T3ACME 
before T3DD13. It is already documented quite clearly in the wiki:


When a patch has an impact on documentation (typically it introduces a 
new TS or TSconfig property, or modified an existing one; same for TCA 
properties), an issue *must* be opened in the relevant manual and 
referenced in the Core patch's commit message using:

Documentation: #xxxxx

It is not required to write the actual documentation patch, although you 
are very welcome to do so. As you know the Documentation Team is 
severely understaffed, so it helps a lot if we don't have to dig into 
the source code to understand how a given property works.

I'm pretty sure this was already mentioned, but I couldn't find where. 
Anyway a reminder is always useful ;-)

Thanks in advance for making the documentation work easier and avoiding 
that changes get undocumented.
