Compared to most software projects I think htcondor's manual is
comprehensive.  A few things are hard to find, so I've ended up keeping a
local wiki page with these.  Part of the problem is that the top-level TOC
is only two deep and some important information is nested deeper than that.

* Dynamic slots: it's under section

* dagman configuration variables

* The full set of options to condor_submit

Here are some links to useful documentation:
