Full var (Site Control) descriptions are in CVS already, and block descriptions (with descriptions of every special key the code recognizes for each block) should be appearing in CVS shortly.
Everybody: please feel free to offer suggestions or point out something that doesn't make sense to you. I have tested setting up and running every single feature I documented in the guide - admittedly on a test site with almost no content, but I did get them to successfully work. The documentation covers the latest 1.0-pre cvs code. If you are using an older version of Scoop, you won't be able to find some of the features described, and other features will work differently.
For those who have been wanting updated "scoop hacking" instructions, please take a look at the working version of the admin guide and let me know if there are any sections you would like to see added, details you don't want me to forget to cover, or details I seem to have forgotten in a section that seems otherwise finished. Offers of help are appreciated, but don't feel you need to write something - a quick note on a missing detail is also a great help!
I've submitted both the HTML and LaTeX source for the admin guide to panner for inclusion in the doc/ directory in cvs.
Oh, and to everybody who adds vars or blocks when making new features - can you either make the description as complete as the ones I've done, or at the very least tell me so I can write up a description? The very terse descriptions that were common before mostly only made sense to somebody who already knew what the block or var was for, and they didn't need the description much...
