Finding configuration values

This is the Rocky doc I was using:

This is what it says about the rpc_workers setting:


Type: integer
Default: 1
Number of RPC worker processes for service.

Is this the correct place to add something like 'If your neutron-metadata-agent.log is full of "error: [Errno 32] Broken pipe" then increase this setting' ?

I'd be happy to help update the docs but I'm not sure how to get started. Opening document bugs doesn't seem to result in any change; if I could figure out how to submit changes myself that might be more helpful. How can I register as a document change submitter?

Since Pike the docs in each project should be standardized and the 
configuration options should be generated from code. So for example:
