+1 I'm of the same thinking!

I was thinking of these steps
- remove redundant info (replace them with links to the existing wiki if
they are necessary)
- refer to the existing wiki for any new editions
- combine the two documents into one with both getting started and next
steps in one doc
- reorganise the contents of resulting document to help create a seamless
experience to end-users
