openEHR @ StackExchange

Hello everyone

This is great news for openEHR but at the moment, the link between the 
specification and the implementation is not clear enough and the volume 
of questions might be low.

The majority of questions in the technical list up until 2013 were 
regarding modelling and specification changes / clarifications. There 
are many more technical questions, concerning implementation, lately 
that could attract questions on which option works better than others in 
a specific setting.

As a simplistic comparison, UML and modelling related questions are 
"lumped" under stack overflow currently.

I think that hosting our own "StackExchange" type of website might work 
better at this point.

By the way, I can add an "openEHR" tag to stack overflow if you think 
that would help things move forward (?)

All the best
