The FAQ is already free, as in GNU.

So, there is no problem to include it in Cygwin Wikia. I am going to copy it
to the Wikia and include a link  in the Main Page and sidebar.

Remember this is freedom. But one can publish official and unofficial FAQ.

This can also happen with a email list. And with the work in GPL (one can
add features or packages). But in any case, I prefer the official version.
