Alright.

Carl - I think once we start adding content to this and use it, we don't
want to have the possibility of everything being deleted. A lot of people
are going to be spending time building this up. It would be disheartening
since this is part of a support system. Links will be pointing to this in
blogs. We will be referencing it in IRC and forums - in addition to any SEO
benefits that would be lost in the trial months. We need to get a good long
term solution in place and then roll with it. I think that will create more
confidence and drive higher usage as well.

Rick - you seem to have a solution for this. Do you want to take a stab at
making the fixes? With the direction we were going, we were wanting to have
the search be filtered by category. Also, it would be nice to have a URL
that would make the categories sticky. That way when you are on a product,
it will stay on that project. This will make it easier for a project to
link to the Q&A site and they know everything will be filtered by their
project. If interested, you can probably put in a infrastructure support
ticket to get access (https://sysadmin.kde.org/tickets/).


For the styling, we will have to make it KDE styled since it will be for
all projects. Making the design look like Krita branding would be
confusing.
Scott
