Documentation should state that "roster" contacts will not be updated

You need to

As discussed in http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=33272&page=10, roster
contacts, that is, contacts that were loaded from IM clients and that do not
exist in the local address book are not looked by Hermes. Being a design
decision, I suggest placing a warning in the documentation
(http://hermes.garage.maemo.org/#what) so that users will know what the
expected behavior would be. If one wants to update a roster contact, the
workaround would be to save it locally so that Hermes can see it. This step
could also be included in the documentation.
