I sometimes run into situations in which documentation is quite confusing. I do understand that it is a collaborative effort on the part of the volunteer global community so often issues such as clarity of language are due to non native English speakers writing, or maybe an author that has a high technical understanding in which case something perfectly clear to he/she is quite unclear to an average reader. I most recently encountered this with the Safe CFlags page. https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Safe_CFLAGS

Usually in these cases a quick visit to the forum clears up any confusion but how does one suggest edits to these pages? I would gladly do so and maybe even occasionally re-write if resources are limited.

The Handbook is maintained solely by Gentoo developers. To suggest a change or clarification, you need to file a bug.

In contrast, the Wiki is an effort of the full community. You can make yourself an account and contribute there without any other hurdle.
