Yes, I would certainly start from what already is there, and try to
get centralization and structure to make it easy to understand and
howto-like, with a section on troubleshooting and some references for

I hope that will match your expectations, but if it does not, please
let me know and I will try to tweak the Wiki page until everyone is
happy with it.
