New users of KPhotoAlbum occasionally visit the IRC channel or write to the mailing list with questions that any seasoned KPhotoAlbum user ought to be able to handle. This also makes the users feel like home amongst other KPhotoAlbum users and they might eventually start helping others or contribute to the project in other ways.

The documentation needs to be constantly updated to cover the latest features of KPhotoAlbum. This mostly means the help files and [FAQ](
