+Packaging
+=========
+
+* **When is version 1.0 coming out?**
+
+Right now the biggest thing holding back v1.0 is the completion of the PSR-Caching proposal. This proposal is meant to
+define a common caching interface that libraries such as Stash can expose to any library that desires caching. Once this
+is complete and we can be sure that Stash does not have anything in it that would prevent it from adopting this standard
+a v1.0 release will be made and the Stash API will be stabilized.
+
+
+* **What happened to the PEAR repositories?**
+
+Frankly, the PEAR repositories were not getting nearly enough traffic to justify the work it took in maintaining them.
+With modern packaging systems like Composer it's time to move on from PEAR.
+
+
+
+Compatibility
+=============
+
+* **What's all this PSR stuff I keep heading about?**
+
+PSR's are documents published by the PHP Framework Interoperability Group, of which Stash is a member. This group
+attempts to make code more easily shared between libraries, frameworks and applications by creating standards that can
+be used to ensure interoperability. Following these standards makes Stash more portable, and Stash can take advantage
+of other libraries, such as monolog, that expose functionality through their own PSRs.
+
+
+* **Does Stash work on Windows and OSX?**
+
+Yup! Some drivers may have special options that need to be set, but these are all documented.
+
+
+Drivers
+=======
+
+* **Why don't you support xcache?**
+
+Unfortunately xcache does not allow itself to be loaded when being run from the command line. Although this makes sense
+in theory, as cli scripts are not going to share memory between runs, it makes testing extremely difficult and without
+testing it's hard to make high quality drivers.
+
+
+* **Why don't you support wincache?**
+
+Because we don't have a windows box to test it on, although that may change.
+
+
+* **Can you support X caching system?**
+
+We're happy to take requests, but even happier when they're pull requests.
