I have to correct myself. The documentation does exist (online), however 
for me as a user it is arranged in a very unexpected manner, and it 
confuses to a surprisingly high degree. First, the material goes all 
upside-down: command line goes before build options, architecture of 
wimboot goes before build targets. One could suppose it does not matter 
(as long as the links are within a single page anyway), but yes it does 
matter quite a lot. Second, it is presented in way that somehow 
discourages long sequential reading (by "long" I mean more than 3 
lines), very much pushing the idea that as a user you only need to 
comprehence "cd src; make" at most, which is not always good enough.

Thank you,
