I see no reason why a wiki cannot have FAQ pages with
lists of frequently asked questions for various

along with links to the wiki pages where those
questions are answered.  To me, the normal sort of FAQ
format seems unduly restrictive.  Combining the
approaches would allow the same documentation pages to
be used in both a reference mode and a FAQ mode.  I
think that such efficiency, along with the collective
approach to maintenance, improves the chances of the
documentation staying complete and up to date.
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.
