Hey Monte,

I've been thinking about trying to write a validator stack for the API document format. Rather than reinvent the wheel I would love to have a look at yours and maybe help contribute to that effort.

Just create the document according to the docs format reference on the guide tab of the docs stack and you can pass it around the community for further editing if you like then email it to me or (probably better) add it to a bug report.

It started with the idea that all examples should be tested to see if they compile (there were some great examples of copy paste errors in there!) but has been extended to try and validate as much of the document as possible against the format specification. It’s looking for things like undocumented parameters or extra parameters that aren’t in the syntax statements, broken syntax statements and whether API docs have summaries. Needless to say there’s a big long list of things to fix (493 to be exact!) and the tests don’t cover everything yet! I may need to call on the community to give me a hand so we can get these things fixed, get the test into the the repo and have them run for every change to the docs.
