Re: Stackexchange community for GNOME/GTK+

Hi Sriram,
Perhaps, it will be a good idea to extend the Stackexchange community to GNOME/GTK+/GLib programming, but strictly limit it to only programming related questions, so the questions about GNOME configuration or switching GTK+ themes will not make into it.

I'm creating a stackexchange community for the GNOME platform and the GTK+ toolkit.  I'm looking for help in subscribing to the forum and of course some people who would be willing to answer questions.  We have three days to build 5 followers and build about 5-10 questions that can be answered.  After that to get to the next phase, we will need 50 followers and 40 good questionsI have some folks who are also willing to monitor and answer questions.

WHY:  We need to have a search engine index-able library of knowledge on our platform.  Modern programmers today frequently use stackexchange and google to ask questions and to look for answers for questions.

Today, questions are answered in mailing lists and irc.  Neither one are search engine friendly and common questions are often repeated and their answers not shared.  Let's build a persistent body of knowledge that people can easily find and lower the bar of entry in writing applications in GNOME or GTK+.
