I think better to have basic GiST documentation shipped and a point
to our page. We have complete GiST API documented in Russian and
a little intro in English, so most work is already done. We certainly
need to write info with real-life examples, but for the moment we
have no time. There is a bunch of GiST based contrib modules at least.
I'll try to translate GiST API this week and would be happy if somebody
integrate it with Postgres documentation.
