What do you recommend calling it then?  I wouldn't be offended by  
it ... and I can't think of any reason it would offend someone because  
it describes the task at hand.  As far as documentation vs code...  
without the code there would be ZERO need for any documentation.  The  
code is the hardest part to make sure it functions bug free.   
Developers are great at writing code but not the best at writing  
documentation, me included.  It's the perfect place for anyone that  
wants to help out!  I welcome anyone and everyone to the project in  
hopes that community members will help out!

We have various IRC channels... #freeswitch, #freeswitch-dev,  
#freeswitch-docs and #freeswitch-social so join irc.freenode.net and  
get involved because you never know how it might change your life for  
the better! ;)

Positive anything is better than negative thinking.
