JJ suggests that instead of keeping the technical question and answers confined to the IRC channel of Perl 6 people should post them to Stack Overflow as well as it is a better place for storing questions and answers. Posting the questions and answers on SO is better than just keeping them in an IRC conversation, but I think it would be way better to put them on the Perl 6 site or in the Perl 6 documentation. If necessary, put some effort to make those sites more SEO friendly, but IMHO it is better to keep the valuable content on the site related to the project that to hand it over to a third party.
