It's pretty much outdated. Thanks for pointing us to it, we need to
modify it to reflect to 013. (volunteers?)

Indeed, sometimes I feel lost myself there, too. Do you have
suggestions on how to set up the layout of the current documentation?

Since there have been doing a lot of work being done on Compile and
Scripts land, such as addition/removal of features and modifications
on usage syntax, we decided to keep their documentation online only,
which saved us from the problem of having synchronization problems
(updating docs on the web page and forgetting the docs on the package

Personally speaking, I dislike to write manpages. It's boring and
time-consuming. A script to parse the entries in the wiki and to
automatically convert them to man pages would be very welcome, though.

Sure we do. I'd just like to hear some suggestions on the layout of
the wiki. Pointing to other wiki URLs where an interesting design is
in use is fine.

Yes, usually you'll find some devs and users there. Sometimes they're
just sleeping, but you can always do some noise in the channel to make
them awake :-)
