I suggested to Scott R previously that it might be worth having a project
FAQ (i.e., what is this project about, what is it intended to be used for
etc.) and a separate technical FAQ which answers the kind of questions
you are expecting and that we see often on the mailing list. I think one
of the reasons that hasn't been done is that we're hoping to introduce a
Q&A function on the website similar to StackOverflow, where everyone can
participate but the most appropriate answers bubble up to the top. As yet
this has not been implemented and I'm not sure when it will be, so it may
still be worth looking into a static technical FAQ on the wiki until it
is.
Is "technical FAQ" == "How-Do-I pages" ?
Kind of, except most but not all FAQ questions really fit into "How do I...".
Kooen's cheeky point is worth keeping in mind though; the Yocto naming
semantics is not very helpful ;-) Specifically most of the questions
being asked on the Yocto list are about Poky, not Yocto, followed by
questions about meta-yocto, not Yocto-project. Many of the questions
being asked on the list are readily answered by googling for 'Poky
Manual', but clearly very few people understand the Yocto project
semantics enough to do this ...
