This is true, but probably not for the reason most people think.

What I do read is *example code*.  A chunk of code that uses feature X 
to do some useful task Y is better than just about any amount of API 
documentation ever produced.

Getting people to push more code to the dumping grounds is probably 
vastly more useful than the API docs.
