your behaviour on this list is absolutely rude.  Who do you think you
are?  What gives you the right to demand that anyone on this list
responds to you?  Have you bought some commercial support or are you a
paying customer of any of us here?

There are dozens of people who have been able to use, configure or even
modify OsmocomBB based on the source code, the comments therein and the
information provided in the wiki.

OsmocomBB is a collaborative, community oriented project.  If you are
missing some documentation, feel free to read + understand the source
code and then create the documentation you are missing.  We are looking
forward to your contribution and are very happy to host it on our wiki
or other project servers (git repository, ...).

If you have studied one specific function / primitive for many hours and
still cannot understand what the particular task is, feel free to
contact this mailing list.  But expecting that anyone will take you by
your hand and do your work for you is simply absurd.

Also: Everyone here is doing OsmocomBB in their spare time.  Expecting a
response in 24 hours or less is simply absurd.  Please don't ever be
surprised if your requests to FOSS projecst get ignored, or if  you get
banned from mailing lists.
