Perhaps.  I don't think Fedora has invested much in terms of growing the
user community.  Our investments have almost always been contributor
focused and as I have highlighted before, without a user community, it is
unlikely we will continue to grow as a project.   If someone wants to go
the StackExchange route,  it is feasible to do a cost evaluation of the
move vs implementing the features we need in Askbot.  We are not competing
with StackExchange overall and don't need all of what they provide to
satisfy our requirements and I think there are benefits to sticking with
Askbot in terms of I18N, customization etc.
