If you cannot reproduce the documentation from the source, then the

Please, don't fool yourself into thinking that "being new to a
project" is equivalent to "being new to software development and
management for the real world".  It is not all about "being around for
long time".

If you feel you must accuse people of evil intentions, please be more
specific.  Otherwise, you are harming more than doing any good.
I would invite you to be more specific in your accusations and write
specifically what is being disguised, for the purpose of going against
the projects goals.

Not just people don't agree with your particular choice of
*implementations* of ideas means that they don't understand the ideas.
Please try the assumption that people understand the fundamental
ideas, and if they happen not to agree with your particular
implementation then maybe:
  (1) there is more than one way to do it; or
  (2) your implementation is really questionable.
