Maybe good to think of this in three categories:

1) What needs to be updated purely based on the move to Apache?  Any
URL's or email addresses that are now wrong?  Anything factually
incorrect?  Anything that should be added to answer common questions
we are receiving related to the move and changes stemming from that

2) What needs to be updated based on the upcoming 3.4 release?  Did
anything come up in the beta that deserves an FAQ?  Do we see  any
thing from the forums or user lists that is new and should be covered?

3) General and ongoing clean up and further work on new and existing FAQ's.

I can help on #1.
