I thought it didn't even exist anywhere on the net, but it seems the
ftp archives are still at


I do think it should be downgraded to a largely historical footnote

Yes, I saw the CVS changes. But at the top of the current FAQ it says:

    If you have any suggestions or questions, please contact the FAQ
    maintainers <address@hidden>.

I guess that should be changed to M-x report-emacs-bug for
suggestions, and help-gnu-emacs for questions then...

A couple more related questions for anyone who knows:

What's the best way to get changes made to
http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/? One of the FAQ links is
out-of-date. Is mailing address@hidden the best thing?

Similarly for updating the text version


What's the best way to make plain text from Texinfo?

Should a FAQ be posted to gnu.emacs.help on a regular basis? I know a
lot of newsgroups that regularly post FAQ lists. Personally, I'm not
sure it helps much.
