+1. The more places/ways that people can find out answers to questions
that they have before they overwhelm volunter debian supporters, the
better. (And the easier it is for them to use/find, the more likely it
is that they'll use it, and find answers to their questions.)

Exposing the database via xml or similar, in addition to exporting to
ddp, would be helpful. I know that I can see people using apt in
#debian to find the answers to their questions, amongst other uses.

Ideally, people will be able to ask questions both via a website, and
via e-mail (and answer them in the same way.) [And possibly through
other means that I haven't thought off...]

I would be glad to assist you in helping to develop/design the debian
FAQ system if there are people who are interested in making such a
system work.

Always try to do things in chronological order.
It's less confusing that way.
