IMHO, the old gentoo-wiki (don't know if the new one will address it) 
does let you down when pages are out of date.

The solution I like is the wikipedia idea: There is a tag for marking 
pages as outdated / inaccurate, and if a page has the outdated tag for 
too long it's removed / archived.

Much like treecleaning!
