I think we're going around in circles.

Paul, you started off with "Maybe Chris doesn't know what FAQ-O-MATIC
is"

The point I made w.r.t. the link I posted is that if you read it _and_
the threaded conversation that follows, you can see that the issue was
discussed quite clearly, and that your question/comment is in fact false
- Chris does know what FAQ-O-MATIC is. One of the most common answers
posted to the main cygwin list is "search the archives". I don't see why
this list should be different. I search the archives on every list I
post to before jumping in a new topic. If it's a topic I've read from
the first mention (and I know it's the first mention) then I usually
won't search the archives.

The second point is that this list was generally in favour of
experimenting with FAQ-O-MATIC, when time permits.

Corollary to point one - posters getting involved in discussions about
whether it's good or bad should read the previous thread before posting,
so they know the "current" (albeit some months ago) opinion and status.
