OK after reading this all, I primarily think that ONE link at the start
of the handbook would be sufficient, if people do not want to read that
or don't care, well they should not blame us, we cannot cope with that
with our current active committerbase.
Perhaps we can also link it on the webpages, 'freebsd handbook' 'older
freebsd documentation'(or something) so that people would be able to
find it from the webpage.. apart from that, i would refrain from adding
any new or massive links (the revisions part of my previous email still
stands though ;))
