I used the NWDA's documentation back in 2011, which is no longer available
at
http://orbiscascade.org/index/cms-filesystem-action/nwda/tools/swg_cont_list_wf_inst_20100128.pdf,
and created the following, which I'll try sharing here,
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1OetYiXdGlgoa9HCR04axx0tkkicSVWmzJGdrHXGtEQ8/edit?usp=sharing.
(Someone could try contacting NWDA and asking them to repost the file.)

Best,
