1. For the nature of wiki system, everything is changeable , so we will keep fast changing thing on wiki. But we also need something static , like "Manual" , focus on hardware (case and electronics), libraries (EFL and framework), environment (Hosting, crosscompiling, OE). This is what exactly Openmoko wants. Maybe we can start by a list that meet criteria we list above ? Where is the best place we should start?  

2. yes we are looking to hire someone , like technical editor, who can rewrite technical stuff for us. Any interested people , please contact us.

Minh really give us very valuable ideas , I hope I can make it real together with the people of documentation list. The list I posted on wiki last week , I already deleted it. And I suggest we start over it .
