The Cordova Slack at http://cordova.slack.com/ would be a good place to start.

Subject: Re: [DISCUSS] Deprecate cordova-wp8

Hello,

I have several questions about the diferences and uses of wp8, windows (universal).
I tried hard to find some objective readings about them, but could not found anything concise.
Where is the right place to ask for orientation?

Best regards,

Sergio
