Somehow this reminds me of a discussion me and Ralf had with Rahul about a week 
ago. I believe I made a comment much like this one. Anyone else see a pattern here?





When I saw the Fedora 7 Faq on the wiki I thought "good work!", so please don't 
think I do not appreciate your contributions, really I do, but ... (that has al 
already been said).

Talking about the Fedora 7 Faq, each time I want to reference it I type "Fedora 
7 Faq" in google, as I can't find it through the wiki. Maybe there should be a 
link on the frontpage, or atleast under the http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FAQ 
page, as that is were you go if you press the FAQs link on the mainpage.
