For me a knowledge base offers categories and other criteria fields which
can restrict your search. Correct me if I'm wrong, but all I see in a Wiki
currently is full text search through one big text field.

I agree with you, but...

Exactly. If there are ways to restrict a topic, then I'm fine with this
solution. Otherwise I prefer a little TYPO3 extension (I think this could
be really easy, couldn't it?)

So the big question is: Who is going to work on this?
Robert, are there plans for some new FAQ already? If not:
Steffen, would you like to work on that project?
