Make it have an index.  Make it refer to the previous posting
("obsoletes ...").  This will give a slight chance of identifying
what has changes since the last posting.  Otherwise it will just
get deleted for "I've read it before, why should I do it again?".

Isn't Derek continuously posting links to an *existing* FAQ?  It
obviously would be better to feed back into _this_ document
instead of duplicating work and splitting off or compiling
another version.

Then a three line message with "There's a FAQ, see it in your
local installation or online at ..." would suffice when being
posted weekly.  Maybe together with a link to a search form at an
archiver of your choice.

     If you don't understand or are scared by any of the above
             ask your parents or an adult to help you.
