Hmmm, maybe we should just try to merge this with the FAQ in the docs then and make it easier to contribute? I鈥檇 love to keep this updated, and don鈥檛 want it to be limited by Discourse.

I was considering adding this to radicle-unofficial 路 GitHub

Or you are saying, we can link github issues in the FAQ? I can open a PR to the docs repo and trying to do that this weekend
