Well my job on the project is to do just this.  I answer and filter  
out questions before they make it to the devs.  Many others including  
Ray and Myself do this most of the day.   So it's no problem.  See if  
you ask it.. and it gets documented then we don't get asked again  
usually.  Which in the long run the pay off is much better.  ;)

The FAQ and Wiki?

Just ask is the best way to get involved.  The weekly conference calls  
are for this also.  Bring up things that need to be documented..  
fixed.. changed.. updated..
