Please write patches against the documentation and send them to the list.
You may also add content to the wiki:

Then please send a patch instead of ordering the other people what they
should do.

I think you're rude to complain about a software that you didn't pay
for. Keep in mind the following excerpt from the README:

	FreeRADIUS is the cumulative effort of many years of work by
	many people, and you've gotten it for free.  No one gets paid
	to work on FreeRADIUS, and no one is getting paid to answer
	your questions.  This is free software, and the only way it
	gets better is if you contribute work back to the project.
