[development] Proposal: Move all dev support off this list to new StackExchange site

When I started in Drupal a bit over four years ago, most of the questions asked 
here would have been posted in the [searchable] forums. There were even people 
who "specialized" in answering questions there. Why do we no longer encourage 
using the forums for questions that will be asked time and time again? Even most 
of the "Why doesn't ... work" questions would leave a valuable searchable trail 
there. True it might not be quite as fast, but it worked most of the time. Then, 
if those annoying questions don't begin with "I posted in the forums three days 
ago..." we can easily say, "Go forth and post."

That is, I think part of the problem that this list is having is that it's 
called "development". It's not drupal-core-development or core-development or 
no-noobs-allowed-development. Because of that, people can (and apparently 
frequently have) misinterpreted the purpose of the list.

Perhaps we could go with the idea that this is a development support list and 
simply create a new list called, for instance, core-contribution? That way, 
there's absolutely no way that somebody could misinterpret the name of the list 
to mean something that it's not intended to mean.
