Suggestions (and a volunteer):
- Divide up the work. Debian is a large entity, and it would be easier to keep
up if several people share the load. (yes, that is me volunteering)
- Thoroughly investigate current and past efforts, especially the Debian
Documentation Project. There is, among many other fine things, an excellent
FAQ in the doc-debian package.
- Develop a system for filtering the information from the various mailing lists
into the FAQ (in the Usenet tradition). Kernel Cousin has some ideas in this
area. Make sure that, in addition to having general information, the FAQ
really does answer frequently asked questions (user and developer).
