The wiki is still pretty new, we just installed it a few months ago, and 
have been slowly working to populate it with data. I'm hoping after the 
release of 7.1 to spend some more "quality" time working on docs on the 
wiki :)

Also, feel free to make an account on wiki.pcbsd.org. You are more than 
welcome to start helping us edit, and make docs. Heck, you could create 
the page for the The Warden if you like, and just put some of your 
findings on it.
