I think one way, and this is not just for WebRTC, is to create a huge volunteer 
organization to analyze, document and add tests to existing free software.

We can make it a fun, inclusive and participatory project, say a documentation 
challenge?  If thousands of volunteers do this it will be much easier to start 
improving software,  I am sure 😄
