  Thanks, but we already *have* a Wiki.  I would really prefer to not
add yet *another* location for documentation.

  Yes... the existing Wiki has a number of out-of-date pages.  However,
the documentation that *comes with the server* is largely up to date.

  Can you say which documentation you were reading, and why it was unclear?

  We can't improve the existing documentation until we know what is
wrong with it.  There have been many complaints about bad documentation,
which usually are because the person is reading 4 year-old guides on
third party web sites.

  *Please* read the documentation that comes with the server.  All of
the configuration files are *extensively* commented.
