docs/faq/*.txt haven't been reviewed in years. An update would be welcome.

A few random examples:

  • jinja2 is a better example of an alternative language than ZPT
  • it's probably worth saying something about NoSQL
  • Instagram and Pinterest are better examples of scaling Django than World Online (sorry)
  • we no longer reject the idea of depending on external libraries
  • etc.

We should remove the questions that don't appear to be common problems these days, update answers when the consensus has shifted a bit over the years, and add question commonly asked on #django or django-users. (Since I'm not following these media, I don't know what questions get asked time and again.)

I did three improvements suggested here by Aymeric.

I didn't touch question about depending on external libraries, because I don't have the full knowledge about this.

I also think that answer about hosting that links to a very outdated wiki page should be either removed or linked to much better mantained Django Friendly.
