Is there a specific (and polite) way to request an FAQ for a topic? That is, if I am working in a field that has limited online documentation, is there a proper way to request a Stack Overflow user begin an FAQ detailing some basics on that topic?
Perhaps the poster should place a significant bounty with that request (500?) as an FAQ on a less-known topic/language/technology could be a lot of work. That said, I'm unaware of a format for asking not just a question, but for a topic to be elaborated on in FAQ format.
(Perhaps all FAQs are currently created organically -- in the which case this becomes a feature request: have an FAQ w\bounty section where users can post desired topics and associated bounties for FAQs written on them.)
