Hi Eric,

Yes, I agree :) I will try to improve and expand the Brazilian
portuguese FAQ translation in this part too (when I finish the
translation of the install page).

But, in the START page, the FAQ page comes only after the installation
page (topics order). So I'm not against "replicate" this (aka: rewrite
it for Google don't be a bad guy and reduce the SlackDocs ranking
because of some "duplicate text" found somewhere in the site) in the
beginning of the installation page.

After all, people will try to access the installation page first, and if
we can give that knowledge (how to find the media installation) "in
line", better for us (and for the user).

And for "user satisfaction" we can try to avoid the user behavior of
randomly navigate in SlackDocs trying to find answers. If we can make
all of them staying in one page for a long time, better.

What do you think?

Best Regards.
