It would be nice if anything under d.o/doc/ (including the faq) is indexed on
a daily [weekly?] basis by some text search engine like namazu2 [name other
options here...]. The Debian CD/DVD faq should also join the party .
Having a search function for the documentation will help users get their
answers faster than before and will save lots of redundant questions to the
mailing lists IMHO.
 Please add that reply  to the CD/DVD faq since it appear to be the most
popular asker these days. The google-bait left there is also a good guess to
stress that enough ;-)
