I've thought the same thing.  That could be *very* useful.

But how about instead of just a RH KB, make it Linux in general.  Then,
in each entry, you could have a line like "Applies to ALL" or "Applies
to RH 5.x" or "applies to all glibc2 systems".  Then even more people
could use it.

And have a way for people to judge the quality of articles, and get rid
of bad ones.

Someone should *definitely* set this up, and I could probably help.  How
could it be funded if it's not RH specific???
