I have updated two places:
https://www.xpra.org/trac/wiki/Usage?action=diff&version=38
https://www.xpra.org/trac/wiki/Download?action=diff&version=26
Feel free to do or suggest more wiki pages.

Note that this is not strictly true: many deployments use xpra without
installing the client, by connecting using the builtin html5 client.

Cheers,
Antoine
