without having looked at the source code: Do you have any papers for a
detailed overview?
On the documentation page there are only presentations.
Having a list of the way it was designed, what purposes for, etc., would be
nice. Is it for small flash devices or rather fast SSDs?

You're declaring it still has some bugs - which are those? Before trying it
out (I hope to have an SSD some time), it would be nice to know them. ;-)
The issues listed seem rather technical.
