In general, what is the prevailing philosophy on removing out of date information? Regarding the fglrx page, a lot of the stuff is regarding historical patches for old driver versions, and really ceases to be useful now. Nevertheless, there is possibly a rare situation where a person constrained to an older kernel / driver for hardware issues would need to reference this stuff. I guess the person could always dig through the diffs to find out what has happened in the past.

I think a moderate pruning approach is best, where really arcane / historical issues are simply deleted, and anything a user might realistically run into can be briefly summarized...
