Only as much as my other work leaves me time though...

Hm. To what extent is the current FAQ wizard a problem for its
maintenance? What exactly would moving it elsewhere accomplish? If
it needs to be moved, we can easily turn it into a Zope application or
Wiki, we have a zope.python.org sitting around for that purpose. But
is there really a problem that that would solve?

Because there are few links to it and it's mostly got information
specifically to Python 2.0, which is already out of date.
