Speaking of the FAQ, we have been studying the use of docbook etc,
things are moving ahead nicely, see: etc

Now we have a question, we could put the FAQ in docbook, both in the
support-pages and for use in yelp, is this needed? Will the faq be
incorperated in yelp for off-line reading?

If yes, then it should be self-contained, no too many  links to other
(wiki-)pages. The answers to the questions should be completely in the
FAQ. If other docs are needed then they should also be in yelp.

What is your opinion? Will the faq be used for off-line reading? Will
we put it in yelp? Together with other Ubuntu related docs?
