[TYPO3-core] Documentation status

Hi all,

I wanted to give you a status update and raise some (serious) issues 
related to the official documentation ahead of the release of TYPO3 CMS 6.2.

First the good news: the manuals that are generally kept up to date 
should be once more updated on time. These are:

- TypoScript reference
- TSconfig reference
- TCA reference
- Core APIs

Some very basic tutorials with very few screenshots will likely be okay 
or can be updated with little effort. These are:

- TypoScript in 45 minutes
- Templating tutorial

And now the bad news. Introductory manuals such as:

- Installation guide
- Getting started tutorial
- Editors guide

are already out of date and will be even more so with the revamped 
Install Tool and all the UX changes. With the current manpower (i.e. 
Christopher, Christian Wöbberking and me), there is simply no hope to 
have these manuals updated on time.

And of course, there's still the big FAL desert.

I don't see any solution except having more manpower. So if any of you 
out there feel inspired to contribute to documentation, this is a very 
good time for doing so.
