A simple warning should suffice:
"While the Gentoo community takes a large amount of care to keep the
wiki's information correct, problems like deprecation of features,
misinformed users and vandalism can and will always be a problem with
the wiki format. If you see a problem please feel free to fix it, notify
a member of the developer team or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org"
Also adding a notice like "Gentoo takes no responsibility for when you
b0rk your box by setting the wrong CTARGET" somewhere would be good.
Those two should cover all the bases.
