Switching to a more advanced Question & Answer webapp
=====================================================
Required features
-----------------
- Allow to vote for the answers and display the answer sorted by votes.
- Allow to ask questions anonymously (possibly using a shared account with a
public password).
- Handle karma for logged in users.
- Have decently smart email notifications.
Possible candidates
-------------------
### OSQA
- http://osqa.net/
- Anonymous posting doesn't seem possible so far. It's been a feature request
for a while, see <http://jira.osqa.net/browse/OSQA-134>.
- Anonymous users are not yet able to vote, see
<http://meta.osqa.net/questions/9683/should-it-be-possible-to-make-user-votes-anonymous>
- Check whether email notifications are cool enough, see
<http://wiki.osqa.net/display/docs/OSQA+Installation+and+Upgrade+Guides#OSQAInstallationandUpgradeGuides-EmailSubscriptions>
<http://jira.osqa.net/browse/OSQA-45>

Other issues
------------
- Do we want to have a shared "Tails" account or separate accounts per
contributors. Keeping in mind that we want to encourage people to create
themselves accounts so that we can vote them up or down. [[!tag todo/discuss]]
- We propose to migrate the interesting content of the forum to the new app and
to remove the old forum from the website. [[!tag todo/website]]
