It seems that for anything that is already well-documented on the official site, we would be better off just linking to it. That way, whenever the official docs are updated, the wiki doesn't have to change with it. 

That said, some of the documentation appears to only be available in Russian. Who is in charge of the translation efforts? I'm happy to help translate this documentation, especially if they could be put into the list of official docs.

I'm with you on that. An easy, streamlined path to get newbies rolling would be quite helpful.
