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does let you down when pages are out of date.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pages as outdated / inaccurate, and if a page has the outdated tag for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!
