Feature #8416: Document MAT and metadata
Help MAT upstream to write documentation
Tails now ship with MAT. The documentation misses how to use it.

- Subject changed from Document MAT usage to Help MAT upstream to write documentation
- Description updated (diff)
- Parent task set to #8416
The MAT homepage doesn't include user documentation. The logic of MAT is pretty straightforward but still, the current interface has proven to be confusing and, in my opinion, having a simple interface is not an excuse for not documenting it (but it makes documentation easier to write).

Low on resources: yes! Plus the development of MAT is stalled. I think we should help them somehow, if ever their development starts again. So rejecting for the time being.
About self explicating GUI replacing the need for documentation: no! No interface will ever be 100% self-explanatory for everybody all the time and people in need of something else than the interface will be very desperate and need good documentation. "Help and documentation" is the 10th heuristics for User Interface Design of Jakob Nielsen. And that's for a good reason: https://www.nngroup.com/articles/ten-usability-heuristics/.
