It's great that you are working on this. I will point out that
we have a central location for GNOME developer documentation
with quite extensive resources and (IMO) good organization:

So, your effort should be planned as "updating".
It looks like from your list, you are aware of this site - so
I just want to make sure that the GDP is planning to work on the
docs there, not create some other resource.

GTK+ tutorial covers both GDK and GTK+. GGAD is a useful resource.

A dead library, not really part of the GNOME platform. (It may
be used by a few things in GNOME-1.4, but it is unmaintained
and being replaced by unicode functions in GLib-2.0)

There is an info page with fairly complete docs, though it is a
bit out of date.
