[pmwiki-users] want opinions on a new cookbook recipe format

I think there is need for both types of reading about and finding Recipes.

One option would be to consider a CookbookQ&A group in addition to the
Cookbook. For contributors, it would be a pain to maintain two different
pages. So, one solution could be to just have the Question in the page of
the CookbookQA group and either include the relevant page in the answer
section or just provide a link.

What do people think?

The downside is that it tends to focus the author (or the reader) too 
narrowly, to one of multiple possible uses.

(I'm not sure whether this is an argument for or gainst the Q/A format.)
