I think secwiki can be abused for that.

Twice in as many days I've seen the "Bennieston tutorial" linked as an 
answer to questions about Nmap on serverfault.com. The tutorial itself 
refers to version 4.11 as the latest version, and so it is quite out of 
date. The specific error was an assertion that Nmap sends 0-byte UDP 
payloads with its scans, which is no longer the case for some ports (DNS 
was the example being discussed).

I bring this up to ask, is there an informal policy regarding old 
documentation on nmap.org? I realize it's a fast-moving target, but even 
a simple header for documentation pages listing the newest version 
number and linking to the most up-to-date documentation (though it may 
be more sparse) would help.

Just my 2 cents upon finding "new" old content on nmap.org.
