Flagging popular help articles

Hi guys,

I saw this article on The Register [1] discussing problems which people
upgrading to Karmic have been having. I was thinking: Maybe we should
have some way of displaying the most popular/topical help articles on
the help.ubuntu.com homepage, to make it easier for people having common
problems to find solutions.

This would be particularly useful around the time of the release of a
new version of Ubuntu, but it would also be handy when a problem hits
mid-cycle (like the whole laptop hard disk thing [2]).

We could have one or two people acting as editors of a manually-produced
list, rather than coming up with some complicated automated thing.

What do you think?
