Online Tutorial, remarks concerning install

Online tutorial on how to patch Your #Joomla install to support my component (9 pages) securityimages in login, registration. While I do not see agree to all conclusions, it is a good start. I do not have time to write code, work, sleep, live and write at the same time top quality documentation. As a note, I would prefer that all efforts of people trying to document my component are centralized in the Wiki (under GNU Free Documentation License)

The purpose of this License is to make a manual, textbook, or other functional and useful document "free" in the sense of freedom: to assure everyone the effective freedom to copy and redistribute it, with or without modifying it, either commercially or noncommercially. Secondarily, this License preserves for the author and publisher a way to get credit for their work, while not being considered responsible for modifications made by others.

This License is a kind of "copyleft", which means that derivative works of the document must themselves be free in the same sense. It complements the GNU General Public License, which is a copyleft license designed for free software.

It will be never easy to add this kind of functionnalities  to JOOMLA since my code is seen as  third party and #Joomla core developer may overwrite my changes at any time. 
Unfortunately, the core of #Joomla do not have so much hook (like in mediawiki $wghook: modifying core without changing a line on the fly)…I will try to do something better for the next release. 
2.2.5 is a lot simpler to install, 2.2.7 is not release but 3.0.0 will be soon deployed to (sound support, code rewrite OO and some big new functionnalities)

If You find an error/want new functionnalities, please report it to the tracker of the project HERE, If you’re a developer, You can send me code patches…

Your feedback is welcomed.
