Certainly the likelihood of use of a feature can be improved by 
documentation; and complete and correct documentation written by the 
original author of a software is ideal.   =8~)  Unfortunately we inhabit a 
non-ideal universe.  =8~(

Wikis To The Rescue! 
(Yes, somewhat but not entirely facetious.) 
A wiki allows wide participation.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiki

You have decades of experience with these systems. Imagine 
difficulties faced by novices.

If J. Doe encounters a difficulty and resolves it, he or she is well 
placed to contribute to a wiki.  These are at the disposal of Oberon 

Also, the ETHZ site allowing discussion and bug resolution.

If a generous person can spare a little time, the discussion of types, 
threshed out in the last 24 hours, can fit here.
Or here.
