Hi all,

Errata pages are common, as roh mentioned. Note, that those are linked
to specific product versions usually. E.g. you can have an error list of
2008.8, but you cannot have an error list of SVN r3434.

So if you want to document errors linked to a specific official release,
it's good to make an Errata and of course a Release Notes. Make sure to
include "Openmoko 2008.8" in the name. (Openmoko 2008.8 Release notes
and Openmoko 2008.8 Errata) (Then you could still add "known issues"
words to that page in the intro to let it find well.)

Getting started FAQ is cool for this I think. Also the big FAQ should be
cleaned a bit to reflect frequently asked questions.

(Note: "What is Openmoko" is definately a FAQ. Also many more of the
general questions, please do not remove them. Very often on a completely
unkown page I go to FAQ to find out what the linked product/software is
in general and decide whether that's what I need.)

No. If you cannot find Terminal in ASU you will type "ASU Terminal" in
the search.

If there is a FAQ question in Getting Started FAQ saying "Where is the
Terminal in ASU", you have a good chance to find it.

Hehe, sorry, actually I think I would never write "known issues". Two

1. Known issues of what? Neo 1973 in 2007? Keyboard in ASU? How will you
maintain that page? Will you remove 2007.2 issues when ASU is released?

2. I know that there are zillions of known issues in all software. But I
want a solution for a specific one. :-p
