When the SproutCore 2.0 project was renamed to Ember.js, it abandoned its old mailing list and started directing all questions to Stack Overflow.
In principle, this is not bad at all. It increases the popularity of Stack Overflow and keeps the active users of the framework from answering the same questions over and over again. It also clearly encourages a lot of new users to post very specific problems to Stack Overflow.
As an active SO user, I'm happy to help others with their questions, but since there is no mailing list at all, the emberjs tag gets flooded with a lot of one-time questions and problems which do not really fit our Q&A format (e.g. Requesting advice for "visually" filter a collection in ember.js and Rake-Pipeline cache_buster and a minifier?). It's annoying for existing users to have to flag, edit, comment on or vote to close these posts all the time when they just want to answer good questions.
What should we do when projects — not just Ember.js — rely on Stack Overflow as their only user support? How should "one-time questions" be handled?
