Probably the wiki. Fell free to create a page with it there and then I
could just link them.

It used to have its own FAQ. But I removed it in favour of the much
more up to date and general FAQ on Octave's wiki. But I'm not sure I
like the idea of the FAQ button, which suggests an internal link,
redirecting the user to another host.

I'd gladly strip Octave Forge of all this content, move it to the wiki
where it is easier to change by everyone, and limit OF to browse
packages and their documentation. But this is way more work than what
I can offer. If people start editing Octave wiki with this info, they
could slowly be retired from the Octave Forge site.
