The "To be added" string is an old string that we used, but people got
confused with "The API has not been implemented", so we added a hack to
the rendering program to substitute the string with something more

mono-docs-list is the place to discuss documentation.

The mono documentation is based on the ECMA documentation, we already
imported it all.   Yes, it is legal, and open "sourceish" as someone
said on a separate thread.

There is a new batch of documents that the new ECMA spec has that covers
generics that we could import.  But before we do this, we need to add
generics support to the various tools (documentation updater, monodoc
itself, etc).
