This is true, the online documentation has no edit functionality right now. If 
I can still trust my memory there has been a call for a project that would 
implement an edit functionality into the documentation browser but nothing 
has happend so far.

That seems to be an error in your installation. Monodoc works fine on my

Yes of course, there is not enough documentation for mono. Most part of the 
class library docs is blank an the wiki is also a mess.

For the beginning you could try to get your monodoc running and write docs for 
the classlib or you could write and clean up some stuff for the wiki. If you 
don't have an account for the wiki post your text on to the docs list and 
someone will upload it for you.

When you decide to write docs for the classlib don't get confused when the 
don't appear on the web in an instant. As far as I know these docs will be 
checked for technical correctness and to ensure that they were not copied 
from the MS-Website. And the last thing I heard about that process is that 
Miguel is the only one who does that right now. Therefore it may take a while 
till those docs appear on the net.
