One possible problem with just letting Google and the list archive
handle it is the handling (or lack of) of attachments.  They often
don't get archived, so you would have to inline the configs, and that
can get messy if you are trying for a hierarchy of config files.
Having them on the main web site is generally much easier to deal
with from the end users perspective, but can be difficult to implement
securely without Mark or someone manually handling it (to avoid ending
up with a warez site).
  I'm not saying the mailing list archive approach wouldn't work, just
pointing out some potential problems.  Having a large archive  of sample
configs in some form is a great idea.

Or suggest how we could make it easier so as to encourage folks.

I don't know enough about Wikis to know if they'd be useful. Anyone?

I'd imagine we could let the mailing list archives and google handle it.
We could post configs with an established Subject line like "SAMPLE
CONFIG for foo" and a search of the archives or google for "sample
config cfengine foo" or just "cfengine sample config" should give good

The main site could just mention the string to search for, and that's
all the work that's required.

Sound good?
