I assume you're talking about the links to sandbox.semantic-mediawiki.org that S Page included. I agree that a testing site is not a good place for any kind of documentation; and if those pages are there only because semantic-mediawiki.org is closed for editing, it's another argument for re-opening registration on that site.

Everyone and anyone should read and update
and make additional "Help:" pages; inform this list when you add
knowledge.  (The pages are there and not semanticweb.org because
cookbooks and demos need sample data.)

Did nobody mention better ways to control the appearance of property
values?  All the new Result Formats are great but you can't say how
individual columns should appear.  The pain of making values appear the
way they want is the biggest disappointment of wiki.laptop.org editors
when they try SMW.  For example, Property bug_number::15541 should
always display as a link and without a comma.  I filed enhancement
request for a  Property:Has_format ,

Anyway, well done!
