(if it's technically possible)https://ask.sagemath.org/question/10303/would-you-agree-to-migrate-to-stackexchange-if-it-becomes-open-source-if-its-technically-possible/**Meta-question**
I rub salt in the wound on [meta.stackoverflow](http://meta.stackoverflow.com/) about the question of Open Sourcing StackExchange, see [here](http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/186641/are-there-noble-reasons-for-stackexchange-does-not-become-open-source) (it currently scores -10, so some help would be welcome...).
The motivation of my previous topic is that I read on [ask.sagemath here](http://ask.sagemath.org/question/2110/stackexchange) that some people are not agree to migrate to StackExchange because it in **not** open source (not yet...).
So I ask to you the following question:
If StackExchange becomes open-source and if it's technically possible to migrate to it :

SX's real value is the interconnectedness of their sites, rep over all of them, etc. This would be an interesting question to raise on sage-devel, though I think most people are pretty happy with the current site and I'm not sure that others will have much to say.Mon, 01 Jul 2013 22:57:19 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/10303/would-you-agree-to-migrate-to-stackexchange-if-it-becomes-open-source-if-its-technically-possible/?comment=17400#post-id-17400Comment by kcrisman for <p><strong>Meta-question</strong> </p>

Well, this is a Q&A site for well-defined questions only! Discussions, announcements, gentle flames, etc. all belong on a developer email list. SX is very clear about what belongs on their sites as well. In fact, this whole discussion does not really belong on ask.sagemath; if we had a meta, it would, but it's not big enough to need a meta - sage-devel fills that role.Tue, 02 Jul 2013 10:49:15 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/10303/would-you-agree-to-migrate-to-stackexchange-if-it-becomes-open-source-if-its-technically-possible/?comment=17388#post-id-17388Comment by kcrisman for <p><strong>Meta-question</strong> </p>

But you're right, the real interest is the interconnectedness with their 104 Q&A sites. Because of that, starting from "Mathoverflow" I myself post some questions on "Cognitive Science", "Science Fiction", "Area 51" sites... So if ask.sagemath migrate to SX network, it will win lots of new contributors, so that this action will open the interest for Sage to many new people...

So I hope SX software becomes open source and Creative Common, next I hope ask.sagemath migrates to the SX network.Tue, 02 Jul 2013 06:39:30 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/10303/would-you-agree-to-migrate-to-stackexchange-if-it-becomes-open-source-if-its-technically-possible/?comment=17391#post-id-17391
