Gregory, we discussed this in the past here. The guide is outdated and
orphaned. We asked how to move forward and the feedback by operators
was: We (= some operators) move it to the wiki and maintain it there.

Yes, we're not going to keep an outdated version published as is. This
needs people to drive the guide forward and none have shown up to move
it forward in the existing form,
