Please send separate bug reports for separate bugs to reduce the risk
that some are lost along the way.

analogue to the comments
"\slurDotted" and "\tieDotted"
there should be a similar comment for dotted phrasingSlurs,
maybe "\phrasingSlurDotted"
I guess you mean "macro" or "command" instead of "comment".
Actually, there are thousands of possible (and useful) property settings
and it's impossible to provide a shorthand for every single one.
Rather, a reasonable level of ambition is to explain the art of property
settings well enough so that most users are able to define their own
macro in such situations. If you look in the file ly/property-init.ly,
you will find the definitions of the macros \slurDotted and \tieDotted
and if you just replace Slur with PhrasingSlur, you will end up with
your own macro definition:
phrasingSlurDotted = {
 \override PhrasingSlur  #'dash-period = #0.75
 \override PhrasingSlur #'dash-fraction = #0.1

version 2.10.33

the comment "\bendAfter" doesn't work in chordmode,
e.g. "<<c c'>>-\bendAfter #-3"
If you want a chord, use the <c c'> syntax. <<c c'>> means something different
(see the manual). However, you seem to be right that neither
<c-\bendAfter #+7 c'>
<c c'>-\bendAfter #+7
provides any bend.

version 2.10.33

in the user's guide-pdf there is no hint that the \bendAfter-comment needs a
digit in connection with a "#", and a "-" after the note
The latest manual for version 2.11 (which is the manual version that's
heavily revised for the moment) shows the full syntax.
version 2.10.33

"\once \override Glissando #'bound-details #'right #'Y = #+3
doesn't work.
This syntax was introduced in version 2.11 and does not work with
2.10. Where did you read about it?
In general, I strongly recommend the manual for version 2.11 also if you
currently use version 2.10, but you have to be aware that there are some
differences between the versions.
