This site is a great idea. To attract more authors, perhaps it would help to allow people to submit questions they need the answers to, and advertise the questions on the front page. Then, people who think they know the answer and feel like helping out could write an article by way of explanation. The attraction? The writer is guaranteed and audience of at least one other person!
It might help to award small prizes for the most popular articles, eg a debian t-shirt or a Tux. Or, encourage the questioners to participate in writing the article - they get their answer, but more importantly, they write down the answer.Here's a question I would like help with:
What methods are there for keeping a fleet of debian machines in sync, so that all have the same packages (and same _versions_ of packages). What are the up/down sides of the method(s) you use?
