[FIXED] I sent a patch that add and updates the content of the current
FAQs and help topics. You find a link to this documentation on the
right menu. Currently you have both Help & Support and  Documentation ,
but the patch I sent removes one of these two links and adds a link
called Help & Documentation which contains FAQ, explanation on how to
run Windows application under wine (you might want to add some entries
here) and also informatons about what a maintainer/supermaintainer is
and what he is expected to do.

Best regards,
