Perhaps the title should be more specific. Abstract

help (and provide required information, and give something back (from
feedback to patches).

Please do not, I see “Accounting Questions” more or less as "Off topic"
there are spcefic websites which can answer such questions according the
local law.

For me there is a logical sequence: Install, configure/customize, use.

No, before you should configure/customize your installation.

No, there should be only one FAQ. Because it might not interest most
users , it is at the bottom.
I am pretty sure, if we would break the FAQ in parts we would end with a
bunch of duplicated sections.

As you have already started, I would prefer - like for patches - smaller
changesets (move section x into...). Diff is not very smart and it is
now almost impossible to see what really changed.

Why did you remove the table to the official docs? Many questions are
already answered there.
