For what it's worth, about half of the FAQs are converted from docbook. You
can probably identify them as the ones with wacky auto-generated
internal anchor links. Original docbook is still on sourceforge, let me
know if you want access to it. (I don't think we want the source to
*stay* Docbook, I'm happy to let it be consistent with the rest of the
site, but it happens that it mostly is.)

This is a pain, and don't do it if it's likely to delay things much, but
any chance of some informal minutes and/or progress reports to the list
if it's stays on the phone? This can attract extra helpers or at least
helpful thoughts :)
