 Summary: Break FAQs into digestible chunks
 The FAQ is about a million pages long and all in one page (except the devel
 faq).  It needs to be in smaller chunks.
+------- Additional Comments From bmaurer@users.sf.net  2004-01-12 12:36 -------
+There are also many questions that need updating:
+Question 141: Does Mono support generics?. 
+Mono doesn't support generics currently but a lot of work is being 
+done towards it.
+Right now, we do have alot of support.
+Maybe one way we could make this easier to read is to use JavaScript 
+to hide the answers, and show the questions. When you click on a 
+question, the answer is shown. MS does this alot. Maybe we should 
+make this more like the Ximian KB, where you can query. Also, we need 
+some `get back to the top' button.
+IMHO, it would be better to do a complete revision of the website 
+rather than a incremental. The website is not very cohesive right 
+now, and doing it incrementally will only make that worse.
+The website as a whole is not very digestible, it is something we 
+need to work on.
