Obsolete? Remove duplication of detailed steps

Which bits of this page are obsolete?

It probably needs an update on some mapnik steps. But I think fundamentally this page is currently carrying to much information, particularly detailed technical steps, which is better maintained elsewhere. It's too optimistic to hope that technical people will maintain this here in a timely manner. I think it should probably be slimmed down to not detail any of that, and just give the "generating tiles" concepts and then link to Mapnik for the instructions. There's also a scope overlap with the Rendering page (not necessarily a problem, they do cover different concepts, but we should be aware, and cross link)

Other things which might make this look obsolete? No mention of newer tricks like TileMill. Anyone know of the tiles@home approach still works now that the main tiles@home server doesn't exist?
