Maybe we should do a major cleanup and tag all outdated docs as such or update them. However, the Wiki is mostly a forum for user contributions. There is no "Wiki Team" as anyone can contribute, but you need to have an account. Once you are registered, feel free to update any document you wish to.

I would also more specifically emphasize that the wiki is by users, for
users, so if you don't like what you see, you are free and welcome, and
encouraged to make it better. Some people start out by just translating
from the existing English. This can also be a good way to learn about
Scribus as you run through the screenshots, and fix outdated information.

Good wiki pages sometimes make their way to the online documentation.
