This is not the first time I'm desperately searching for Bitcoin Core help and finding none, but look at this: https://bitcoincore.org/en/doc/0.20.0/
That's the closest thing to a "manual" I can find. But it's about RPC commands. I've gone through their entire damn website (both ones, in fact) and made numerous web searches but find nothing resembling a manual. Where is the manual? Is there a manual?
Right now, I'm trying to get official descriptions of these two configuration options:
They are not mention anywhere on that page, and seemingly nowhere else officially. Am I supposed to guess what they mean and try to piece together information from ancient questions asked by random people online? How is anyone supposed to get a Bitcoin payment system running and actually use Bitcoin when there is no manual and a hundred BIPs are released per week?
The lack of information has caused countless of my projects to never get off the ground. I don't understand the mentality that a lot of people have that things are somehow "obvious" or "don't need a manual". Especially not when it's for a crucial piece of software which we're supposed to use to revolutionize the world.
