Is there any document with written specs about XML views in OpenERP ? closest document I found in official docs is openerp dot com slash trunk/server/03_module_dev_03/ but there are no specs. (couldn't post link because of stupid karma issue)

Example, reading that document, I couldn't find any possible tag that could be used inside <openerp> other than <data>.

Take a look /server/openerp/addons/base/rng/view.rng

It is a RELAX NG schema that specifies the pattern for the structure and content of the OpenERP view XML format.

Can't find any pattern for menuitem or record for instance.
