Yes, I agree with this.

I'm trying to keep README.prism2 up to date with all the features and some configuration examples. However, it is probably not verbose enough for all users of the driver. I think it is more productive for me to concentrate on the driver development and technical documentation than to write user documentation that would include issues not directly related to the driver. In other words, getting such documentation completed is depending on someone else volunteering to write it..

I know that there are numerous web pages that describe some parts of the AP configuration. One should be able to find these relatively easily with Google, but I could also add some links to the Host AP web site (assuming someone sends me URLs for good pages).
