Much better job would be to.... Write The F..(ine) Manual!
So we can reply with rtfm again
I suspect that WTFM (Writing the Fine Manual) in such way as someone
other than the program author or fellow developer can understand it, is
considered by many programmers/developers as more difficult (or boring)
than writing the program itself :-)

"Writing good documentation is hard. It's much harder than writing
code."
Chris McDonough, ZopeMag Interview July 2003

In this case things like LNAG would also need to be updated or an
equivalent created (AFAIK this has not been done yet). Not really a
simple exercise....

Yikes, the NAG is one amazingly out-of-date document.
