osqa.net looks good.

There's also an established service (answerhub.com/), which could be 
implemented quickly...at a cost. They are kinda cute (maybe deceptive) 
with their pricing guidelines, but apparently they are willing to 
discuss charitable deals.

There's a comparison between OSQA and AnswerHub at
but there would need to be a decision about the importance of features 
that are only available from the commercial AnswerHub.

StackExchange seems to conflict with...
"Online services associated with the project are either hosted on KDE 
infrastructure or have an action plan that ensures continuity which is 
approved by the KDE system administration team"

Hard to see how continuity would be ensured. Perhaps the continuity plan 
could be to start on StackExchange, operate there until something could 
be established within KDE's infrastructure. As a beginning Krita user, I 
would greatly appreciate this kind of resource.

A Q&A capability would be helpful for other KDE technology as well.
