Bug#408293: x11-common: FAQ is, I think, a text form of http://wiki.debian.org/XStrikeForce/FAQ

Package: x11-common
Version: 1:7.3+20
Followup-For: Bug #408293


yes, the FAQ is still missing. I think I am referring to the Debian X
FAQ at the URL above. If you look in the BTS you will see bugs asking
for changes to the FAQ, and if you look at
/usr/share/doc/x11-common/changelog.Debian.old.gz, you will see many
mentions of the FAQ (but none that I can find about its removal).

I cannot now, three years after filing this report, remember why I
expected to find the FAQ in the x11-common package, but clearly it
would still be useful to have a copy of the still-existing online FAQ
in some X package, and as you can see, the FAQ was in this package in
the past. Ubuntu have removed the FAQ from their X packages because it
contained information that was inaccurate for Ubuntu, and hence
confusing, but I presume that reason doesn’t apply to Debian!
