Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Joost van Baal <joostvb-debian-bugs@mdcc.cx>

* Package name : debian-faq
Version : 3.1.6
Upstream Author : Ray Dassen, Javier Fernandez-Sanguino, Susan G. Kleinmann,
Josip Rodin, Sven Rudolph, Chuck Stickelman, Santiago Vila e.a.
* URL : http://www.debian.org/doc/user-manuals#faq

Description : The Debian FAQ

In this package you will find the Debian GNU/Linux FAQ, which gives
frequently asked questions (with their answers!) about the Debian
distribution Debian GNU/Linux and others) and about the Debian project.
You'll find out that some answers assume some knowledge of Unix-like
operating systems. We'll try to assume as little prior knowledge as
possible: answers to general beginners questions will be kept simple.
.
This document is available at http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-faq/
as well as from the Debian ftp server at ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/doc/FAQ
and mirrors thereof.
.
The document is supplied in HTML, PDF, PostScript and plain ascii.
.
If you're new to Debian, and like to read documentation from your local
system, without using the network, install this package.


Hi,

Up to 3.1.5, the Debian GNU/Linux FAQ was shipped with the doc-debian
package. After some discussion on debian-doc list (
http://lists.debian.org/debian-doc/2008/03/threads.html#00065 ), work
started on splitting the Debian GNU/Linux FAQ from doc-debian, and
shipping it in a package of its own. The debian-faq source package will
create a debian-faq binary package, holding the FAQ in English, as well
as debian-faq-de, debian-faq-fr, debian-faq-it, and debian-faq-zh-cn,
holding translations previously not shipped in packages.

Current maintainer of the FAQ is Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña.

Bye,

Joost
