18 First stab:
20 I don't know the Gentoo wiki's style policies, but I do know MediaWiki
21 reasonably well. I did take license to edit for language/linguistic
22 style, but not for substantive comment. Please go through and correct
23 anything that seems broken. It's almost 4:30AM where I am, and I
24 really ought to be sleeping, so I almost certainly mussed something
25 up. Pretty sure I switched styles about halfway through, too.
27 You should find the MediaWiki syntax reasonably accessible; just click
28 'edit' at the top of the page and compare what the 'raw' form looks
29 like with what the results look like.

34 has the best content. Generally, you'd play around in a
35 sandbox page of your own (on whatever wiki site you have an account
36 on) to get a feel for things.
