I am at a WordPress conference now and am getting some feedback about this
Q&A platform. They mentioned trying a WordPress plugin called CM-Answers.
If we use that, that would make it easier since it would still be on the
WordPress platform.

Maybe I can send a request to create a http://qa.krita.org  subdomain with
a WordPress install. They also recommended setting up a Multi-Site install.
That way we could potentially have multiple instances for different
languages if needed.

I am going to request a sub-domain and see what I can do with this plug-in.
Does anyone have issues with tha?.


GIT repo for it
