Documentation Guidelines
What to Document
  * Who wrote the code, so proper credit can be given when credit is due, and so others know who to ask for advice when adapting it in the future;
  * When it was written;
  * What the code accomplishes;
  * Where the code fits into the overall architecture of the application;
  * How the code is used, providing an example if possible, or at least an explanation of the parameters the code expects to use and variables it alters;
  * Why design decisions were made or another existing routine was not used. 

Additionally

  * What still needs to be done; (TODO((%%FIXME%% is high priority, TODO is normal priority, and XXX is normal priority too)) tag)
  * What is really important to be done. (%%FIXME%% tag)
