Here might be the home of a user maintained documentation project.
This project has found life following some discussions which occurred on misc@ mailing-list.
If you feel the documentation is not as you want it, please feel free to improve it and we will find it a home!
For now, send your docs to here.
Official OpenBSD documentation can be found here:

New initiative for binary updates effort.
This is a best effort service to provide builds of the stable tree of OpenBSD (only kernel + userland, no file sets for X at the moment).
The goal is to build a new release(8) once a month and after a security fix is published. As this is done by a small group of volunteers, no guarantees can be given in any way.
These files can be used to install OpenBSD or update the system. If you are updating, don't untar the etcXX.tgz file, unless you want to wipe out your local configuration. See the OpenBSD FAQ for further instructions.
Please note that these files are not provided by the OpenBSD project. If you don't trust them, don't use them. Build your own binaries, (http://www.openbsd.org/stable.html) hire someone to do it for you or wait for the next release.
If you think something is missing or broken, please send an email to openbsd at z74 dot net.
Binary available here: ftp://ftp.su.se/pub/mirrors/openbsd_stable/

The purpose of these documents is not to replace any existing documentation for any of the mentioned software components. The sole purpose of these documents is to explain how to set up said software/applications on OpenBSD, period. These documents are not meant to explain how OpenBSD works as that is well documented in the OpenBSD FAQ, which can be found on the OpenBSD website. These documents do not replace the OpenBSD FAQ but are here to provide supplementary instructions on the setup of said software/applications.
Send your docs to me for now.
As for any valuable content for "the Official OpenBSD FAQ", please do not send them here! First read Nick Holland's posting here and specially here, then if you think you have something of value for Nick, send it to him. For the rest, if it is good, send it here. As Nick put it, "I would expect independant projects would have different criteria, goals and such." So, take it as such. If anything here is valuable to you and useful, great, if not... maybe you can help!
