New CrossGCC FAQ maintainer needed?

When I inherited the FAQ, I did update much of the information, but I
did not perform the overhaul to the basic structure that I felt it
needed to make it more useful. Maybe that time has come.

I haven't touched the FAQ in almost two years - got busy with other
things and lost interest I guess. If there are folks out there who have
an interest in maintaining it, I'd be more than happy to turn it over to
them.

The original document was done in Lyx, and translated to text, HTML,
Postscript etc. using the Linux SGML tools. If you want the source, I'll
dig it out and post it to the list.

Regards,

Scott
