Documentation of the code

Recommended Posts

I downloaded the source code of Paint.Net 3.20 and I noticed that large parts of the code are not or only marginally commented. I'm wondering if this has been done deliberately, i.e. that most comments are deleted before the source code is released in public. Or is there maybe a good code documentation the developers use but which is not released in public? Or do the developers really program using that little amount of comments?!

I searched the board about this topic but I didn't find anything about this.

Comments aren't scrubbed from the code before release.

Ok. Do the developers have some extra code documentation for reference then? I'm just curious because other big open source projects I've seen use a rather big ammount of comments and/or have a documentation in which (almost) all classes / methods etc. are described.
