GLOSS: general documentation

The general documentation on GLOSS here. It is arranged in groups of pages on similar topics and, within each group, in a suggested reading-order. You don't have to read the whole of each group, nor every group. Topics discussed in some of these groups especially towards the end may well get rather technical and are not intended for all users.

A star indicates a page that is especially recommended.
