there's a lot of good documentation on this wiki, but it's hard to find sometimes. it's also unclear if we should look in the git-annex manpage or elsewhere in the wiki or where. this is a typical problem with the use of wikis for documentation: it's there, but hard to find. it doesn't mean a wiki shouldn't be used but, as with any user manual, special care needs to be taken about structure, organisation and making sure the manual is exhaustive.

a good example of this problem is document standard groups more extensively in the UI. --anarcat

update: a beginning of this may be the the workflow page but it lacks a lot of details...
