Thanks Thom,

I added that to the omf files this morning and we are able to see the docs in 

We will take a look at the language part. I think it is also important, but 
does not impact on seeing or not seeing stuff in yelp.

The problem is that we want to see our docs in the default page of yelp. At 
present we see them under Other Documentation
