There are excellent resources out there all ready, and all ready  
linked to from our wiki. Lets not make even more work for ourselves by  
writing lessor, and duplicate documentation. But by all means have a  
wiki clean up, and make sure we're pointing folks to useful maintained  
content. The trick with the wiki is keeping a minimal but needed set  
of information, so people actually have the energy to find it, read  
it, and we can keep it maintained and accurate!
