Again sorry if the mail sounded harsh, but I tok my 3 hour yerterday to get my 
project back to compile :(

Unfortunately we are far from getting the docs to build without warnings. Look 
at (both files should ideally be empty):
* docs/gst/gstreamer-unused.txt
   symbols in here have docs, but are not yet entered into the
   gstreamer-section.txt file, thus it does not appear in the docs.
* docs/gst/gstreamer-undocumented.txt
   symbols here have no docs yet, there are two cases:
   * internal symbols, which are uninteresting for the developer
   * public api
   The internal one only need to be move to the private subsection inside
   the section.txt file. The public ones need docs.

My plan regarding the docs is to inline the remaining 5-10 files (moved docs 
from tmpl-files to inline comments). I would appreaciate if anyone who stumbled 
upon undocumented api where he knows what it is about to add a doc-comment.
Right now we have 372 undocumented api entries.
