Nothing, and it is correct pointing that out. OTOH, there are billions of
open source projects out there that started with an idea but never entered
that finished state where they are useful, so-called abandonware. If the
documentation is old, it is either stable or abandoned. Only a closer look
can tell which of both, but statistically it is more likely that it is
abandoned, sad as it is.
