The Wiki isn't advertized yet at all, for a good reason:
It is still in "setup state" -- a bit more for Wiki authors than
readers, and also has "holes" that should be filled (or marked)
before wiki "release".
Its principal maintainer is Philippe Grosjean.

Please use the R-SIG-Wiki mailing list for more on this,
or maybe start browsing its archives a bit :

AFAIK, the  `` "Wikified" version of all R man pages ''
is the biggest project yet to be completed before "Wiki release"
