Since there is already a DebianHELP.org site that seems to have the
same target - and it's currently seeking for a new home[1], I wonder
if it wouldn't be a good idea to combine their effort with yours and
improve the site, its content and give it a new home?

Please note, that the site is already wellknown in the "Debian
World".  Having two similar named site would probably cause more
confusion that it would help, I assume.
