I know I know discourse is not a Q&A platform, and you might not believe in negative votes, etc, as mentioned in other posts. This is not a question about the philosophy, it is a technical question, so please proceed with technical answers.
I think a forum platform like discourse, and a Q&A platform like SO have a lot in common. On the other hand, despite many tries, a polished, high quality, open source clone of SO with a large community and high momentum like discourse does not yet exist. So I was wondering how easy, or difficult, would it be to create a plugin that would convert discourse into stackoverflow?
Would this imaginary plugin be something ‘hacky’ that only would work as a prototype, or would be reliable enough for production?
