Background: I am involved in the definition (and update) of a new interface for data exchange: alpinebits. It is released under a CC-BY-ND license, there are quite a few implementations already available.
I would like to know what the opinion of more experienced user is about using a tag on SO vs. creating a new SE site. My own considerations follow, but I did not find an answer:
- It's a protocol, hence questions that are not coding-related are expected. A new SE site could be better IMO, but I see that this is tolerated on SO, though.
- Its implementations can be made in many different languages, hence it would benefit from being a tag on SO because of cross-tagging.
I hope someone can provide an answer, or a link to best practice that I was not able to find. Thanks a lot!
