While we're looking for optimized forum/Q&A experience for
sub-communities, this reminds me similar question: Krita (or Kexi, for
the record) forum(s) dive in the large KDE forums family. It's easy to
get lost. Do you think the above note, usability-wise, also applies to
forum.kde.org?

Would own forum instances, still managed by KDE admins, be better?

More controversial note is also: it's not necessarily natural for
majority of their non-contributing users (Krita, Kexi) being outside
of the KDE Plasma orbit, to visit and contribute to "KDE [community]
forums".  In best case they may see themselves rather as a part of a
standalone application's community. Just like Angry Birds fans do not
call themselves iOS/Android community.

(just 2c)
