If I had to describe the contents of the FAQ in Mathematics
in a single sentence, I would call it *mathematical gossip*
or perhaps *non-trivial mathematical trivia*.

The FAQ list is a compilation of knowledge of interest to most professional and amateur mathematicians, ranging from advanced topics such as Wiles' proposed proof to Fermat's Last Theorem to the list of Fields Medal winners.
