Please note that if it takes a while for an OSMF response to questions its
only because we are collating the thoughts and adding additional generic
Q&A's to the FAQ. We haven't forgotten about you. Hopefully we can create
common responses that cover generic questions. As new Q&A's reach the wiki
we'll confirm via the list.
