I for one love Borland's help and would like it if someone started a documentation efffort.  We have spoken about using PASDOC.  I'm not sure if this is the best choice or not.  I would be interested in getting something that was as useful and looked as nice as Borland's.

I would be happy to pitch in.  What I think we would need is some templates that would help others create the pages correctly.  Maybe generate some and we can see where we go from there.

    I'm new to this mailing list, but I'm a long-time Pascal/Delphi
developer (about 15+ years with Pascal, and about 4+ for Delphi) and I'd
like to pitch in a little bit with Lazarus to try and help get it going.

    Before I start jumping in with some new components, I need to get a
little better aquatinted with the existing code anyway.  What I'd like
to do is try and start a "Lazarus" documentation effort for each one of
the objects in a manner similar to the Borland help documentation, but
with some much better examples and explanations for the properties,
methods, and events.  I would envision this as a series of web pages,
but I'd like to also know who else is also working on anything even
remotely like what I'm discussing.  I know that this is somewhat
automated by pulling stuff from the unit files themselves, but this is
also limiting because the cross-links aren't usually present and
sometimes the explanations are not quite as well done as they could be.
