Since we have our discussion about networking going on I want to add similar question which seems to badly overlap between SF and SO.
There are a lot of VCS questions that are asked or get bumped over from SO to SF. But they seem to more appropriately belong on SO.
From the SO FAQ
- a specific programming problem
- a software algorithm
- software tools commonly used by programmers
- matters that are unique to the programming profession
As we Just because the word 'server' is used in the posted VCS question doesn't make these really appropriate for serverfault. I believe they are even less appropriate for superuser.
For an example look at this recent question 165691. If you look at all the users that actually provided an answer every single one of them is more active (more rep) on stackoverflow then serverfault or super user.
It sure seems to me like a large number of the VCS questions that are asked on SF have next to nothing to do with the actual servering of a VCS system and more to do with the day-to-day usage which in my opinion fits the commonly used by programmers portion of the SO FAQ.
Please don't take me to be saying that all VCS questions belong over there. I asked a moderately popular question myself about using VCS, but I was asking how to use a tool I believe is mostly for software dev to manage my server configuration better.
So where do you think VCS questions belong, or what qualities of a VCS question make it belong to one site or the other?
