I installed Faq-O-Matic at home and it works well. I know no other
faq maintanance tools though so I can't compare it.

I use it as a kind of knowledge base where I step by step include tips
and tricks on programming (SWORD) and other things. So the very helpful
answers Troy once posted to me get a home now where I can easily find

All in all Faq-O-Matic is easy to install, also if you are not root
(I did it at work in my user space). I still have to see how it reacts
on large text bases.

Joachim, don't we want to have something like this on bibletime.de ?
