This is a grey area I would like to be clarified a bit more. For example, a robotics software working in real-time, probably uses RTAI. Now if you have a question related to RTAI itself, should it be asked here or in stackoverflow? An example of one such question is this.
Perhaps, being more specific, I could ask the following: Should only algorithms related to robotics be discussed here, or the questions regarding APIs made for robotics applications could also be asked? In the later case, does that mean whatever question on stackoverflow related to robotics can be migrated here?
In other words, is software for robotics going to be a part equally important as the mechanics and electronics of a robot (for example) in this website?
