shouldn't this be written in the Wiki or do you have other documentation in mind?

Of course, that's what I mean. The accordant section in the Wiki is the Documentation...

Documentation should be in the official wiki.
Unfortunately I'm not allowed to delete pages from the forge wiki - otherwise I'd already have deleted all the pages there, which contain redundant information.

To be honest, I don't think that we have to document everything again (like --author). Ask Google or git help commit and you will be helped.
