As I found out the hard way, it is and it isn't... I originally started the documoz project on mozdev a few months ago thinking of doing something similar, and perhaps producing some sort of help extension besides the usual help file. Within a few days, I came across the mozilla book project, a firebird help page on the wishlist project, and many non-mozdev documentation pages, and the tipbar project was soon after launched to provide a help extension. (Since then I've been a little busy and not so inspired as in the time between starting the project and finding all these scattered resources)

In fact, quite a few mozdev projects have help pages on at least one special topic, like translation or help installing and understanding what the extension is. So, next time I have a chance, I'd like to modify the documoz project by making it not the catch-all documentation site, but instead for now a collection of links to as many documentation sites as possible, because right now there's a lot of stuff out there that people miss- some good for one topic, some good for another. Can anyone suggest a few links I could add, with brief description of quality/coverage?
