    My idea is that the wiki could be used for collection and

    I would prefer a combined approach. Discussing the subject on the Wiki
    and then transfering the result to a more "authoratative" source. That
    way you do not have to go through the discussion to get the
    answers. You
    can also bundle the Emacs w32 FAQ with the windows port.

    The emacs w32  FAQ then of course should have links to the Wiki.

FWIW, I agree with Lennart. Use the strengths of the wiki and the strengths
of a FSF-managed, authoritative FAQ.
