DevOps themes sit at the meeting point of many disciplines, and we can foresee that a DevOps Q&A site is likely to attract a lot of questions which could also be good fits on Server Fault, Stack Overflow, or Virtualization, Cloud, and Grid Computing or some other site on the SE network.
Some persons expressed off-site concerns about the creation of a new SE site, where questions will be off-topic, voted to close without a word of explanation and the like. This is why I trigger the discussion, so that people committed in the creation of a new SE community can discuss how we want to handle the type of questions mentioned above.
As a discussion starter, let me recall one important principle of the SE network: users are invited to be welcoming and patient, which tells us that user behaviours leading to the concerns reported should not be seen as normal.
As a community, how do we ensure that we are welcoming and benevolent while taking care of on-topicness of questions asked? History shows that some SE communities seem to have lost that direction from their compass. How are we going to act?
