thanks for adding more general arguments in favour of using!
Many good points!

Two minor notes:
a) I've seen wikis rot, so they are much harder to clean up then.
   -> They need to be maintained, if they go a certain critical mass,
      wikis are less useful then doc files done by the devs in SCM.
b) I've seen the crowd being wrong (especially on design and science 
   questions). Encryption potentially is such a topic.

Still I think is a plus for GnuPG, OpenPGP and the Free 
Software end-to-end encryption community. It can use more help, naturally.
