Some thoughts about Documentation:

As the success of OpenBOM continues to grow, you, our users have asked for documentation to help get the most out of using OpenBOM.  So we’ve embarked on the process of creating this documentation guided.  Our goal is to provide you with information that is as helpful, clear and concise as possible.

For the last 6 months we added and modified many OpenBOM features and functions, which requires lot of documentation pages to be updated.We are in the process of complete re-write of the documentation. But, we are also actively developing OpenBOM. Writing help and documentation for OpenBOM which is in development with releases every 4 weeks is like never ending job of Golden Gate Bridge painting. But we are doing our best to keep OpenBOM documentation relevant and up to date.

If you have questions about documentation, please contact me directly: oleg @ openbom dot com. Thank you for using OpenBOM!
