-1. A link to FAQ might do the trick. But how many queries of this sort (clueless) do we actually
get? Not that many, yes? I would rather we keep our website as clean and direct as possible,
and invite people to contribute, yes, and to distribute, but given *why* people come to the
site, the simpler the better. Analogues: Mozilla, for one but one could also point to other
open source apps that are commodified, e.g., Drupal, https://drupal.org/. (Drupal's site is
clearly not meant for the naive user, however.)
