Yes, I see all the content was moved from wiki.openwrt.org to openwrt.org/docs 
but organized a lot better.  

I suggest there is still too much mixing of firewall3 configuration, iptables 
configuration along with too much archane/confusing background information.  I 
would like to re-partition the firewall section into 
* pure firewall3 concepts (e.g. iptables interface), setup and examples, 
* iptables concepts (user-side, kmods, procfs), setup and examples,
* miscellaneous (e.g. future nftables/nf_tables support, third-party iptable 

I think everything in the current firewall docs can go into one of these 
sections or be discarded.

The easiest for me would be to have access to the openwrt.org docs filesystem 
to move/edit the markup files.  I'm also willing to provide an structure 
outline so that you/etc can lay out the structure.

But first, I'm upgrade from 17.01.5 to 18.06.0 on my testing router...
