You need a reasonable base documentation first if you want people to  
try your system. The bare minimum (i.e. the one that doesn't make your  
loose your time with the system) is not here yet. And if you want to  
build things for others to use you better have some empathy, so you  
should be able to imagine some of these questions.

What I see in the wiki doesn't qualify as a manual to me.

The problem is that "wiki" here seems to stand for "write the manual  
for me please".
