If it be like that the Xbox emulation it's never. While you don't have documentation of the Xbox hardware the emulation will remain indefinitely without evolution and advance. It's complicated. It will be that from here to 5 years the Xbox emulation it will still continue without significant advance and without knowledge of Xbox hardware documentation?

I'm can't really tell what exactly you're asking here?
After reading your post a few times, perhaps the question is:

Is there a repository of Xbox1 related documentation somewhere, so that future emulation can use that as a source of information?

And the answer to that is : No, there's no central point where all possible information on the Xbox1 can be found.

However, there's a lot of information hanging around on people's harddisks - stuff like photo's of the hardware, hardware diagrams, lists of chips, (repair-) manuals, technical documents, bios dumps, leaked kernel sourcecode, etc, etc.

The only problem with this is, that some of it is not entirely legal to have it in your possession or distribute (depending on your local laws).

So, my advice would be: If you're into this sort of thing, try to get involved in "the scene", help eachother along, and keep searching the internets.

Imo it would be much easier to "emulate" Xbox on a per game basis, so basically you should make an "emulator" that initially only makes a few games runnable on PCs and with every new release the list of supported games will grow. It has been done before, there where emulators that could play Halo 1 and Turok decently, because they were specifically coded to run these games, but for some reason people stopped developement.

The fact that Xeon ran Halo back in the day, and that Cxbx ran Turok first, is pure coincidence IMHO. No self-respecting emulation coder would want to build an emulator for just one game.

Besides, this topic is derailing. Regarding the documentation-question, there's not much to add, unless someone has a few links to share?
