What we planned, at the suggestion of Rahul, is to pull the FAQ directly
into the release notes.  This puts the data on the local system for
off-line value, linked directly from the default Firefox homepage.

Our FAQ is linked from the sidebar here:


I did think about linking directly to fedorafaq.org, but thought it
would be confusing to have two FAQs side-by-side.

Ah, now that's a good point.  We missed it for test2, but let's make it
a point for test3 to get the FAQ into XML and available for translation
long in advance.  There might be last minute changes as we get closer to
test3, but the majority of the content could be translated and only have
to do some updates.
