Gael already answered if you want to make a wiki page, which is one of 
the "authoritative" means of documentation we have. Another, probably 
slightly more so, is the docstrings. Your efforts in this regard will 
certainly be reviewed and incorporated if acceptable to a developer if 
you make a patch against the svn version of scipy and create a Trac 
ticket containing the patch.
