I'm the one to blame as I added this. IMO anything that helps the user

And I welcome patches. :)

The problem might be where to make the cut - what is still a
*frequently* asked question and what it isn't.

Could you elaborate a bit?

The problem with the FAQ is it gets increasingly difficult to keep it
accurate across numerous Evolution releases, whereas the user docs for
version 3.2 address the way things work in version 3.2, etc.

On the other hand, the generated HTML pages [1] could really use a table
of contents.  I do still find the FAQ easier to search, though.  There's
something to be said for having all the answers on one page.

It's a trade-off.  I personally love the new user docs.  Andre has done
a fabulous job with it, continues to improve it, and is very responsive
to bug reports.  But there's room for improvement in how it's presented
on the web.
