I have to say that many simple things are hard to understand because  
there are no docs about them.

As I am using grok for a project, I will make a list with those  
undocumented issues. I will try to do at least a simple howto about  
each item.
Because I am a real beginer in grok/zope maybe it is easier for me to  
see what is missing.

Thank for your help.
