It wasn't wasted time at all.  The "official" FAQ is now the wiki.

We cannot stop, nor should we try, other forums from hosting Lucene 
related content.  JavaRanch, jGuru, TheServerSide, etc all have 
Lucene-related content.  jGuru is a forum _and_ FAQ.  A maintainer 
(Otis in this case, and myself for the Ant one) at jGuru is responsible 
for promoting forum entries to FAQ entries.

I have mixed feelings about the jGuru situation as it relates to be 
personally as a co-maintainer of the Ant area.  I would like to see the 
quality jGuru system and content more open, but also understand their 
situation as a company.

I strongly suspect that there is very little overlap between the 
communities of people that frequent the user list and these other 
web-based forums.  I personally prefer the e-mail list and the wiki as 
_the_ source of Lucene information.  Others, however, find that web 
forums handy.  jGuru's search is quite nice, though finding something 
specific on the wiki FAQ shouldn't be difficult either.
