Subject Re: Handling questions in the mailing lists

Here's a view into the requirements, for example:
http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/76571/emacs

You're right there is a lot of activity on SO, easily 30-40 questions per
day. One thing I noticed about, for example, the Data Science SE is that
most questions relevant to it were still posted on SO or Cross Validated.
It struggles as an SE even though there is, out there, more than enough
activity that _should_ be on the specific SE.

There are more niche things that end up working as an SE, so I'm not dead
set against it, though it would remain unofficial and my gut is that it
might just split the conversation yet further. I'd leave it, however, to
anyone active on SO already to decide that it's worth a dedicated SE and
just do it.
