You mean some kind of FAQ? Well, in my 14 months "consuming" this list,
some questions really appeared showing need for something like FAQ
(Frequently asked questions). Most of them were about where to find some
particular data - JV biography, books, films, etc. Maybe Garmt's index will
be a possibility, but I feel that those dozen of students, which appeared
once at the list asking for, more often, a brief biography for their
schoolworks, expected something like "brief intro in JV". Something like
FAQ could be also a kind of "propaganda" to keep that one-time-visitors
longer at our list... other opinions?
