	We can't control what other documentation that people create.  We 
can have some control over our own documentation.  There is one 
README.QMAIL file that you should have gotten as part of the Mailman 
source code.  If the instructions there are not adequate, then we 
would appreciate feedback on what is needed to bring them up to par.

	Alternatively, if there is one good canonical source of 
information for using Mailman with qmail that has already been 
produced by someone else, then that should be linked from the FAQ. 
We do this same sort of thing for people using Mailman with Exim, and 
I see no reason why we can't do this for Mailman and qmail as well.

	Ultimately, it all comes down to unofficial documentation sources 
versus the official and semi-official ones.
