One of the ways we hope to achieve this is by merging the Developer Testing: Unit Testing site proposal***** into programmers.se.
We believe that the Developer Testing proposal, as stated:
- would be actively harmful as a standalone site, in that it would negatively draw traffic from a larger covering site into a niche site
- covers topics that are already perfectly valid and allowed and exist in large quantities on stackoverflow.com and programmers.se (compare to web app questions on superuser, which were explicitly disallowed, yet kept coming up)
- can be folded into a re-disciplined programmers.se for a much broader audience and thus an overall more productive and useful treatment of the topic, versus a niche site
We invite those interested in this site proposal (or programmer.se) to answer: do you agree that the developer testing site proposal should be merged into a re-disciplined programmers.se or another general programmer site?
In your answer, please provide evidence to support your position, either yea or nay.
