This sounds like a good idea. Although, it would not have helped experienced people like Dave (i had a similar "surprise" half a year ago, where "xinha did not work", endig up with searching a while around the changes in the new master templates). A link to a wiki page alone helps, but is not perfect either, since different releases might have different "what's next" steps". This argues for files/pages in the distro, or to some release oriented naming on a wiki (e.g. /5.4/wiki/first-steps), or similar.
