Subject Re: [SITE] Towards a fresh new design
Date Wed, 24 Jul 2013 01:48:20 GMT
Benedikt,

You may also following Google's approach.  I think it's clever:

"To get help on a specific question or problem, post a question to
Stack Overflow with the tag "guava". We monitor these questions using
this RSS feed."

Clearly, the tag could be "apache-commons."  I mean, the tag already
exists, but it could be better advertised.
