Yes, you are right. This fine piece of software is poorly documented. It
lacks a good doc for newbies to start with. A migration guide from
net-snmp would be important, too.

Volunteers are welcome. Although author doesn't have time to write
extended documentation, he is very responsive on questions. So, a
volunteer who takes this task will receive answers to all his questions.

P.S. Default configuration file and startup script have already been
committed to RELENG_5.

Totus tuus, Glebius.
