      Because you want to learn. That's what books are for. I'm really confused by this question.

        I've already written in another post that this work must be done by the wayland's inventors. Otherwise a programmer don't know how to proceed, and starts inventing (a make buggy things).

          This is complete nonsense.

              So how do you feel about books teaching physics or math? The original developer isn't writing any books and since only the original developer can understand anything about how anything works, there shouldn't be any books on math or physics, right?

He most likely has more knowledge on how to develop Wayland based software than anyone other than Wayland creators themselves.
                I did check waylad documentation of source codes, I wrote a wayland client... and was working on own wayland compositor... till I noticed... that wayland is crap... and that I should not waste time on promoting crap. Check their official documentation of the wayland protocol... then check any rfc you find there outside... and notice the difference. The wayland documenation is mostly just a collection of comments from the source code of the reference implemenation.

                  You are wrong. Every new method or invention is explained by the author. Unless he want to keep them secret.
