We have documentation issues in a very complex project that I'm involved with. Mostly, we try and generate just enough documentation to manage against the "N Car Accident" problem that involves a number of people getting into a car accident at the same time where N is the number of core people who know how to run the project. If N of these people are incapacitated, could someone else take over?

Have you identified padawan candidates, or do you need a knight-classed programmer to succeed?
