Some of us who work on the Dataverse project ( https://dataverse.org ) just had a meeting to discuss how to encourage our community to ask questions, answer questions, and build a knowledge base surrounding our software, which is an open source web application for sharing, citing, analyzing, and preserving research data.
With a focus on "developers and researchers interested in open data" http://opendata.stackexchange.com seems it might be a good fit for our community, which we believe is already familiar with a variety of Stack Exchange sites.
Specifically, I'm wondering if people on this site would object to a "dataverse" tag that we would encourage our community to use whenever they have questions specific to our software. This would be verify similar to the "android" tag on Stack Overflow. At http://android-developers.blogspot.com/2009/12/hello-stack-overflow.html Roman Nurik from Android Developer Relations wrote:
In essence, the Android tag on Stack Overflow will become an official Android app development Q&A medium.
A "dataverse" tag might be mutually beneficial if our users come for the tag but stay to ask and answer other Open Data questions.
