That sounds like a FAQ.

That sounds like a hackfest.

A knowledge base, if I understand the term correctly, is meant to be a
centralised collection of knowledge relating to a particular topic.  I
don't think we can hope to generate or organise enough knowledge to
become central to the GNU+Linux user's community.

The LoCo and RUSLUG[1] both have wikis and many of us have blogs and
websites, and so I don't see how anyone could have a problem
communicating solutions.

I'd enjoy contributing to an advocacy-based FAQ or a hackfest.
