very good idea and I'm ready to help you out. 3 days ago we had a "CKAN
Party" in Italy and as most people were newcomers we found out what are
the most common problems they find, especially when adding new packages
as you said.

I'm all for keeping this FAQ separate from the technical docs, instead
it would be much better if it was incorporated in the CKAN website(s).
