I am happy to contribute to a quick start guide documentation - for example here is my blog entry on how to compile OpenJDK on Windows (probably need updating!)
Perhaps an outline like this:
1) Prerequisite environment
2) Initial setup (e.g. getting the VM, etc)
3) How to compile, what are the options
4) Different type of builds (what is fastdebug? Etc)
5) How to start contributing (What bug to work on, etc)

So I think the last time I discussed this with Mani and you guys there was complete consensus about moving to a wiki, but the issue was we needed to figure out how to incorporate the information. At the moment we have a sprawl of wiki pages with lots of detailed documentation. This is a good thing, but there's also need for a "quick start guide" type wiki page. So its not just integrating the google doc into the wiki, but figuring out how/where the information should lie.
