The two resources we do have, that I know of, are:

1. http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Sugar_Almanac
2. http://wiki.laptop.org/go/API_reference

Neither, it seems, is complete, but I think they are being actively worked
on.  I think our ability to adequately predict and/or prevent breakage will
improve quite a bit over the next few releases, when a) APIs are better
documented in the first place (which also gives us obvious places to
indicate future changes, additions, and deprecations) and b) fewer pieces of
the system need to change at once, lowering the number of variables
involved.
