Shoulda checked first - this already kind of exists at http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/WPD:Editors_Guide - Garbee started to put this together a little while ago.

They take different approaches, and I think both have merits. I think both suffer from a potential risk of TL;DR, so ideally we need to:

1. Write a "5 minute guide to getting started"
2. List the more detailed guides to accomplishing specific tasks in a sensible structured way that allows people to get more help on topics they are working on, as and when they need it. This is not too terrible right now, but could do with tweaking.

So who is gonna take charge of doing this?
