As a total newbie the lack of documentation is a huge frustration, as is the
lack of places to turn for help.
I posted a question this morning about a failed install after having spent
several hours searching high and low to try and find an answer without
success... and still don't know if im doing something wrong or have
discovered a bug??
This is the first time ive encountered and used a mailing list of this sort
so if this is not the right place for my type of question, where else can I
or any other newbie turn for advice??

From what I have seen over the past few months on this list is there is
an increased interest in RED5. This interest seems to be spurring more
and more beginner questions, questions that could be dealt with if there
was better documentation. As a result I have also seen a decrease in
help due to the increased volume. This is affecting users that have
more technically advanced questions as well. My gut feeling is that
this will eventually resolve itself, but what I see now if the downward
spiral, the user base is narrowing because the community can't keep up
with the demand. The biggest stumbling block I have to stepping up to
the plate and helping more people out is the utter lack of documentation
and the sparse/inaccurate commenting within the source to attempt to
figure things out in order to help provide documentation. I would like
nothing for than for this project to be useful for more people, but it's
a steep hill to climb.
So I don't think another group would solve the problems here, I think
better documentation is the key. If all these newbie issues were
documented then the list has the potential to be more useful.
