I looked around a bit and started wondering why there's such a
multiplicity of pages answering questions about Fedora.  The purpose of
the release notes is to answer release-specific questions, for instance,
while the installation guide should answer question specific to
installation.

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FAQ -- makes a lot of sense, general
information about the project and the distribution.

http://fedoraproject.org/Fedora7/FAQ -- Reproduces information from the
regular FAQ, the release notes, the installation guide, and other
sources, and is clearly a maintenance drag

http://fedoraproject.org/Fedora/FAQ/Glossary -- Should either be
subsumed into the Jargon Buster at
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/jargon-buster/ or vice versa

The more documents created for the same purposes, the more maintenance
costs we create.  Maybe we can have a few people looking for easy wiki
work start some discussions here (by replying to this message, perhaps?)
on how to streamline our wiki docs in a way that eases maintenance and
delivers the right information in the right channels.  If that includes
bugs filed against any formal docs, so much the better!
