Hi Nicolas,

While it would be fantastic to be able to review all of VTK and add
documentation where ever it is missing, in reality the resources to do
that will likely never materialize. However, one of the great things
about VTK is that it is open source, and anyone can contribute patches
to the source code, including missing documentation.

With that in mind, I invite you to become a VTK developer and
contribute the missing documentation in a patch. Directions for doing
so can be found here:


Feel free to add me as a reviewer to any documentation topics you post.

Best regards,
