I can offer only one comment on this thread: I can guarantee that
whereas I intend to remain observant and where necessary involved with
ardour mailing lists, I will, at best rarely, and at worst never,
participate in a web-based forum.

I suggest that a better idea is to find a way to do auto-registration
for the ardour manual wiki, and add a more user-centric/user-created
section to the manual, somehow. This is not Steinberg: material that you
guys think is worth documenting is worthwhile being in the manual, if
its done well. There is no need to create the usual sub-industry of
Craig Anderton-alike books on "tricks and hints with Ardour".
