I'm so glad I've started this feel-good session today! :) Please Ave-the-Vampire ask your question. Throw it out there, if we can help, we will.
I find the documentation good to a level. You can find info on topic #1 or topic #2. But you need real-world experiences/expertise sometimes to see how #1+#2 work together! For example, the original OP here, ... they wanted to know about snapclones AND DataGuard. I think Oracle documentation discussing the 2 TOGETHER will be rather limited!!!
