To provide some clarification of why it is up to date:

The documentation for many things (applications, dialplan functions, 
some configuration files, manager events, etc) exists as XML within the 
Asterisk source code itself near the implementation. There are scripts 
which take this XML and produce some of the wiki pages you see. We've 
also made it so that documentation for some things has to be specified 
when adding stuff or else Asterisk will not allow it to work. This makes 
documentation as close to a first class citizen as it can be (albeit 
that doesn't mean one can't write bad documentation).
