It would be very helpful to have an FAQ for the data hub where we cover some core points what this is all about. Have a look at the Django project's FAQ, which is pretty thorough and neatly organized. Something like that would be very nice. The Q&As can first be written in Google Doc and once ready, we will embed them on the website. Feel free to brainstorm around the questions in the comments.

Discussion and updates

New task was created

Note also that we have a task for the planned ABOUT section, with a table of contents and first progress in this task. The FAQ could be merged into it, no? Or is it vastly different? This could also be a place to integrate the beginners guide (from your new task).

Great Carolin, good points! I see this particular task (and also the beginners guide) simply as sub-tasks of the larger ABOUT section. I think it is good to have them separately, because they are more palatable for any (new or old) user to take this on during a single sprint, than having to work on the entire ABOUT section. Also, these specific pages have (in my mind) some more urgency as they will help the sprint itself if we have them. So, this is definitely related stuff, and we should in the end indeed merge this into the same section.
