Hmm.  Given that there are thousands of people reading this mailing list
you could expect many replies.  There is no way of knowing which of
them would be correct.  Sounds like it is not worth your time to be
asking questions either.

Although, I suspect your real reason for not using Google is that you
can't argue with Google.  Or maybe you find that you are winning all
of your arguments with Google and are looking for a challenge.

We don't send out notices every time the FAQ is updated.  The reason we
include the URL for the FAQ in the bottom of this message and suggest,
in the mailing list welcome message, that you consult it before posting
is because it is guaranteed to be more up-to-date than something you
downloaded a while ago.
