I love this list. It’s been a massive help to me over the years of Omnis development. I feel a sense of camaraderie among developers on this list – I went to Euromnis last year for the first time, and got to meet some of you guys for the first time – finally putting a face to a name on a list. However, I think we need to have something public and searchable like Stack Exchange, so that we raise the visibility of Omnis.
Can we do something where we cross-post between the two? For example, we have a question, so we put it on Stack Exchange, and then post on the list “Hey, I have a question, here’s the link …” so there’s some cross-referencing between the two? If you have an answer, you can reply “Hey, I posted an answer, here’s the link …”.
I use this list for Omnis answers, and the search tools that we used to have aren’t here anymore, so searching the archives is a little painful. For Postgres and other tech questions, I just google it, and most of the answers turn up on Stack Exchange. Admittedly, I’ve never answered a question on Stack Exchange…
Maybe if someone could write up a “how to”?
