Pentax caveat database/wiki?

It would be great if there were some centralized place where known issues with Pentax equipment were tracked, we could see how common the issues are and if/when they are fixed.

I'm referring to things like the K-r's front-focus in tungsten light, the K-5's initial sensor spotting, the K-3's mirror-flap issue, SDM motors dying in various lens models, etc.

Is there already anything like this?

There was at one point a Pentax-Wiki related to this forum, I'm not sure what happened to it?

There isn't a centralized list of such issues (might make for an interesting article that could be kept up to date), but we do have the serial number database to keep track of defective units.
