Nope, I mean like a rough idea of the table of contents:
   
   1. Introduction
1. Welcome to The GIMP
  1.1. Known platforms
  1.2. The GIMP-Help system
   2. Legalese
1. The GIMP License
   3. Toolbox
1. The Toolbox
2. The Toolbox Menu
3. Rectangle Selection Tool
4. Ellipse Selection Tool
5. Free Selection Tool
6. Fuzzy Selection Tool
7. Select By Color Tool
8. Scissors Tool
9. Patience! For the Jedi it is time to eat as well.
10. Color Picker Tool

13. Measure Tool
14. Move Tool
15. Crop Tool
16. Rotate Tool
   4. Filters
1. Filter introduction
2. Blur
  2.1. Overview
  2.2. Options
  2.3. See also...
   Glossary


Don't know how 3.9. slipped in but apart from that it's what we have
right now. We need more introduction, more tool descriptions (also from
those not in the toolbox), plugin descriptions, meta information (like
keyboard shortcuts), examples, screenshots etc...

 However, I offer you the chance to write a particular section for the
 docs right away... Wanna pick a topic? :)

Would it take you long to put together a list of topics that docs
are needed for? We could cross-post to the gimp-users list, and
maybe send a copy to the GUG and see if anyone there is
interested in helping out...

Just an idea.

Cheers,
Dave.

The main motivator I was talking about is bringing up a help browser for
a certain tool, seeing a 'please help' msg.

 Well, there is an outline (i.e. the index) which might give a few hints. 
 A fully fledged would take some time and cooperation though.

Where is the index? And when you say outline do you mean root
document with lots of dead links?

Cheers,
Dave.

 But I would perhaps make sense to setup the framework and encourage
 people to contribute help for gimp-2.0. We could setup some text that
 is displayed for all missing pages and that explicitely encourages
 people to write help on this topic.

I think this would be pretty elegant and would appeal to me personaly to
write some particular doc. Write documentation is a horrid picture to
me. An insanely large task. Write a particular section actually sounds
fun.

We have had this notice in GIMP for quite a while which means that you
either never even used the helpbrowser or didn't care. :/
