Has anyone spent any time with Stack Overflow Documentation (in Beta) yet? I
haven't had a chance to poke around:

Stack Exchange already has a site for English grammar and usage, so those
questions can be deferred there. This is actually one of the virtues of the
Stack Exchange network, that it has places to send off-topic questions.
Helps keep things a little cleaner in each site.

As long as categories are fluid and can be easily segmented so technical
issues, style and grammar issues, production issues, and other types of
issues could be separated and spun off when needed, stack overflow should be
a good exercise.

There has been a proposal made to create a Stack Exchange site for
Documentation. Considering the impact that Stack Overflow has had on the way
technical information is created and shared, I think every technical writer
should be aware of how it works, and having out own site seems like the
perfect way to learn how it works. Not to mention that it could help raise
the profile of the profession among stack exchange users, which would be no
bad thing.

Have a look and add your votes and sample questions for the site.
