The AI would only respond to initial posts (new threads). If someone still has a problem they reply to the original thread stating that the wiki response did not work or was not applicable to their problem. I figure the AI would trigger on specific terms or phrases. NTF would get all the info on how to add NTF support, caveats, where to get it etc. kernel source would get the pointer to the release notes. ssh would get pointer to release notes (ssh -X -Y) and standard security lecture. and so on. There could be an additional bypass token put in the message or subject to prevent the AI from triggering on content of the message. -- Scot L.
