Indeed we do and I just wasn't aware of it.  Thank you!  It does appear to
be mostly user questiosn, so it wasn't exactly what I had in mind, but
that means the platform already exists.

I wonder if just using the same forum is a good idea, or if it would be
better to create a separate contributor-focused platform.  StackExchange
tends to split things fairly heavily (in some cases too heavily; I have no
idea what the intended difference between ServerFault and Unix and Linux
are, except that there are no Windows questions in the latter).
