If APWG feels there is a need to guide newcomers, APWG can write a FAQ or newcomers document themselves. This should be a working group activity. To be honest I don't see a lot of value in this proposition. It already is part of RIPE NCC's duties to make the website and published documents usable and searchable. I'm not sure what an (opinionated?) historican really adds here. Kind regards, Job
