None that I know of. It would be a good idea to create such
a page in the wiki though. It should be according to the gtk
client, and the other guis made to follow it.

(There is a warclient shortcut quick reference
but of course there are many warclient specific things
in it that don't exist in regular freeciv.)

Making the shortcuts in that patch consistent with the
gtk shortcuts would accelerate this process.
