I'm most active in the c++ tag and as a result I find myself referencing C++ FAQ Lite quite a bit. That tendency comes from my brief Usenet experience, where the convention was to link to known good content rather than writing your own answer (i.e., don't reinvent the wheel). The convention on SO, however, appears to favor writing your own complete answer rather than linking somewhere that might not exist in the future.
Given that the C++ FAQ Lite website has only had one update in the last three years, is there any benefit to posting some of the more interesting FAQs (using the c++-faq tag) on SO and letting the community decide on the best answer? I'm certainly not suggesting we plagiarize the excellent work of Marhsall Cline et al. It's just that many C++ language questions (and I think this applies to most programming languages) that come up on SO can be answered simply by referencing the FAQ website.
What's the right thing to do? Should SO seek to become the home of all programming language FAQs?
