As the question states, I want to find data about a particular project and I am wondering what the right place is to ask people how they go about searching for it. Would Stack Overflow be it?
Those kind of questions belong on Open Data Stack Exchange who have a special tag for them. But, like any resource recommendation requests on Stack Exchange, they have strict quality guidelines you should definitely read before posting a data request. Otherwise the question is likely to be downvoted and/or closed.
