I don't like Wikis because they tends to fill up with outdated or flat
out wrong information (see the ALSA wiki for an example).  People love
to post their half baked advice, but they never take it down when it
becomes obsolete.  We still have zillions of users who think they need
to create an .asoundrc to make ALSA work and they all end up copying the
same one without any idea what it does or whether it's needed.
