For my .02, I'd think some work on an authoritative rank-beginner document

probably intended to almost do that.
Another idea that's come up before is an FAQ for debian-user.
This is the only suggestion I received, but jumping in head-first always
hurts, so may I ask if there are others who think this is a good idea?
My own experience is that the sparc-list gets the very same questions
over-and-over-and-over again, all well answered in the FAQ which it appears
doesn't get read by the "rank-beginner".
If I put a spin on the suggestion from Chris:
What is the response to a one-page document called:
"So you want to do Debian, but don't have time to read everything."
