I'm ok with putting this in Pidgin's existing mtn tree.

I agree that it would be good to host the document on the main Pidgin web
site, and I like the idea of waiting to put it there until it's a little more

I've been kind of wondering what the best format is... do you think it would
be more useful to people as a set of web pages?  Almost like a visual FAQ? 
I'm trying to decide if people are more likely to view a PDF or a web page. 
One benefit of a web page is that it's more accessible to web search engines.
