First stab: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Mdev
I don't know the Gentoo wiki's style policies, but I do know MediaWiki
reasonably well. I did take license to edit for language/linguistic
style, but not for substantive comment. Please go through and correct
anything that seems broken. It's almost 4:30AM where I am, and I
really ought to be sleeping, so I almost certainly mussed something
up. Pretty sure I switched styles about halfway through, too.
You should find the MediaWiki syntax reasonably accessible; just click
'edit' at the top of the page and compare what the 'raw' form looks
like with what the results look like. >

MediaWiki.org has the best content. Generally, you'd play around in a
sandbox page of your own (on whatever wiki site you have an account
on) to get a feel for things.
