Related to this other meta question, but being a specific instance we can examine:
Here's my question on the actual site: What steps are necessary to configure WebDAV on IIS7 running on Windows Server 2008?
Refer to the comments there. A couple of other beta testers have indicated that serverfault.com is a better place to ask the question. I don't disagree, simply because of sheer numbers of users at the moment. But I thought the exercise here was to create a site where webmasters could ask questions relevant to their profession?
My question is, admittedly, about a server technology. But it is about a web-server specific technology, WebDAV, often used by webmasters to maintain content on a site. Shouldn't this type of server-technology question be permitted and not referred to serverfault? I think overlap – to some degree – should be perfectly acceptable, especially when the technology is highly relevant to webmasters.
Or, if no overlap is desirable, then why not send the web server technology questions here? (once the site is full-fledged out-of-beta, that is.)
