Subject Cleaning up the FAQ
Date Tue, 21 Jun 2016 23:20:21 GMT
I think our FAQ is a bit of a mess (with all due respect to the people
who have contributed to it over the years -- time has just taken its
toll). Some questions are no longer relevant for recent releases (e.g.
documented workarounds for problems that have since been fixed; or
referring to BDB or subversion 1.0 or ...).

I'd like to clean it up a bit:
1) Move anything only relevant to old releases (anything < 1.9 or <
1.8 (?)) to a separate page (faq_old.html or something -- linked from
the main faq with a link somewhere at the top "Questions about older

2) Remove some questions that are unlikely to be relevant /
interesting anymore (e.g. "How is Subversion affected by the 2007
changes in Daylight Savings Time (DST)?")

3) Gradually rework some answers where we have a better way of explaining.


I'd like to start with (1) and (2) to get at least some "less
relevant" stuff out of the way, and then do some (3)-work when / where
I feel an itch to scratch ...
Any help is greatly appreciated of course.
