Documentation for Plugin developers ?

I have donwloaded this Plugin Development Package, and it doesn't have any kind of proper documentation ?! Just sources, and Open API javadocs that doesn't contain any explanations, just clean javadoc build without any kind of data ...

Yes, that's the hard life of a plugin developer... :(

The only advices I can give you:
- take a look at http://www.intellij.org
- browse randomly through the javadoc
- look at the source code of other plugins
- ask specific questions in the plugins forum

Thanx. I hope your pointers will be useful.

Anyway, this really seems to me as major issue for plugin development if IDEA takes this area seriously at all.
