Did you have already such proposition or plan ? Would you like to open a

Would this be similar to Stackoverflow?
I there anything we could use as a base if we were to set something up on
the GNOME servers?

The Stack exchange software (used by Stack overflow) is proprietary. I
think Ubuntu used to have their instance hosted there.

There is AskBot (http://askbot.org/) which is a free software
alternative. It seems to be used by Fedora
(https://ask.fedoraproject.org/) and we could run that on our servers.

Solace (http://opensource.plurk.com/solace/) is another possibility.

We could possibly just point people to
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/gnome-3 or
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/gnome

Relying on a third party hosted, non free software tool when there is
a viable free software alternative doesn't seem very in line with the
GNOME philosophy.
