Is it an acceptable usage of Stack Overflow to use it as a sort of Q/A database for extremely specialized topics (still related to programming, albeit very narrow focus)?
I teach workshops on a real-time operating system and often, students have specific questions about certain aspects of our product. We have an internal mailing list we use to disseminate the knowledge, but SO would be a very nice way to capture the information: Pose the question and the provide the answer.
I know that Jeff encourages this, but I don't think he envisioned this scale: we're talking about posing and answering 100 to 200 questions. I would make sure to tag them appropriately just with the specific rtos (vxworks) tag. Those questions would probably have a minuscule audience.
Am I just setting myself up to be down moded as a spammer wannabe?
