We're thinking about moving all the technical stuff related to DO4 to http://StackOverflow.com out of this forum. The main reason is simple - promotion. Others are:

  • StackOverflow sorts the answers in order of their rank. So better answers are shown first.

  • I suspect it also will also be easier to maintain it there, since e.g. you can subscribe to tag updates via RSS

  • After some period there must be a community competing for answering the question well - StackOverflow is designed for this

  • Finally, this will eliminate the necessity to register here & monitor this forum ;)

What do you think about this?

Quote from StackOverflow blog:

We’ve been approached in the past about using Stack Overflow as a support forum for various products, and I’ve always turned these proposals down. I feel the content in Stack Overflow should not be driven by official support channels, or product teams, but by the programmers themselves. If there’s interest, the questions will appear organically and in their own time.
