Hmmm. I am wondering that too. 

I realized my answer wasn't addressing what you were asking. 

I feel a little frustration and also dispair about fielding an answer to your question.

The question itself is partly to blame. I know you have some specific apps in mind because you mentioned the OB browser and its options.

I also know there is no well known index for documentation else the answer would have come easily.

So I have to ask you for help.

1) Can you make us a better question? List a handful of apps you are seeking documentation for. Then 

2) What would be the criteria for the documentation being specific for your purposes? 

3) How would you expect to find that documentation in the context of what the squeak community provides?

4) Are you willing to contribute some effort to making an enviornment where this documentation is available and can be found within the community?

Yours in curiosity and service, --Jerome Peace
