If they contain useful information, pull the useful
bits our and include the info in the appropriate
sections of the docs. Including a catalog of random
bits of info and advice wouldn't be all that useful
IMO, though the info therein might be very useful.
Talk with the developer and see if he/she is cool with
wrapping the useful info in with the pertinent info in
the documentation.
