I believe that the confusion is among people who have not actually  
read the guide in detail, and think they know the process, or think  
they have a better idea of how to run the process.

While I have no objection to your crafting such a document, I suspect  
that documentation isn't the issue. It's failure to read the  
documentation or failure to ask questions where the existing  
documentation isn't clear.

Do you have any ideas on how to make sure that people read and  
understand the documentation, either the existing or proposed update?
