I've been using Hadoop for some time now, and after carefully looking it seems that the only place to ask questions about implementation details is still the official Hadoop mailing lists.
I'm talking about many different parts of Hadoop, like Map/Reduce, Pig, Hive, ...
There are a few questions on StackOverflow, but except from a few users, I find these questions with very low view counts there, and very low answer rate as well.
When I type "Hadoop" on area51, the first site returned is this one though... There is indeed a proposal for "distributed systems" there, but it's been in the definition phase for a year and I have doubts it will ever see the light of day.
I wanted to consider asking questions about Hadoop here, but after doing a quick search it seems there are no questions on that topic.
So I was wondering if here would be a good place to ask questions specifically related to Hadoop, since it also deals with big computations? Or should I consider creating a separate proposal on Area51?
