            Bug ID: 261258
           Summary: Q&A Link on home page points to wrong web site
           Product: Documentation
           Version: Latest
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: Website
          Assignee: doc@FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: rob@belics.com

On the home page, the drop down menu Community -> Q&A (External). The link
points to the Stack Exchange site Server Fault.
https://serverfault.com/questions/tagged/freebsd However, the topics allowed on
that site are as follows from that site's FAQ

Server Fault is for questions about managing information technology systems in
a business environment.

If your question is about:

* managing the hardware or software of servers, workstations, storage or

* tools used for administering, monitoring, or automating these

* deployment to and management of third-party provided information technology

While not totally incorrect, the more appropriate and related site should be
https://unix.stackexchange.com/ where the FAQ there
(https://unix.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic) states:

Unix and Linux Stack Exchange is for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other
Un*x-like operating systems.

If your question is about:

*Using or administering a *nix desktop or server

*The Unix foundation underlying OS X (but generally not frontend application

*The underlying *nix OS on an embedded system or handheld device (e.g. an
Android phone)

*Shell scripting

*Applications packaged in *nix distributions (note: being cross-platform does
not disqualify)

*UNIX C API and System Interfaces ( within reason )

Perhaps both should be included in the drop down on the FreeBSD site.
