Re: Stackoverflow Questions

I like the idea of working to improve the our presence on Q&A sites like StackOverflow. SO is a great resource and much more discoverable / searchable than a mail archive.

One idea on how to improve our presence: StackOverflow supports setting up email subscriptions [1] for particular tags. It would be very easy to forward new SO questions to the user@ list, or a new list if we're worried about the noise.

That's "classic" in the Apache projects. And yes, most of the time, we
periodically send or ask the dev to check the questions on other
channels like stackoverflow.

It makes sense to send a reminder or a list of open questions on the
user mailing list (users can help each other too).
