Stack Overflow vs. discussion group

I've noticed that while there is some activity on Stack Overflow's
[elasticsearch] taghttp://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/elasticsearch,
this discussion group is much more active. Notably, kimchyhttp://stackoverflow.com/users/275993/kimchy hasn't
been seen on SO since October. Is this discussion group the preferred place
for any and all Elasticsearch questions? Or are some questions more fit for
SO? I hate the idea of posting the same content to both, but I find myself
considering that amidst my uncertainty.

On http://www.elasticsearch.org/help/, it's stated:

There is a strong, helpful community of users on the user mailing list and on IRC who are happy to help you sort out any issues.

No mention of SO here.
And yes, you're right, posting the same question on both places is annoying to me.

My 2 cents.

I am also annoyed by cross-posting, although I am not on SO. It is
equivalent to those that post URGENT! in their titles.

And BTW, Shay is not too active on the mailing list either:
http://elasticsearch-users.115913.n3.nabble.com/template/NamlServlet.jtp?macro=user_nodes&user=15852
However,
ever since the formation of elasticsearch the company, there are now other
power users that respond to issues.

I've answered a few elastic search questions there recently. As a
programmer, I get a lot of value out of that site these days. Most obscure
issues I run into seem to have an answer there. So, I wouldn't discourage
it and instead engage with it more. Stackoverflow has nice support for
suppressing the noise generated by stupid questions and silly answers since
both are subject to voting and moderation. Personally, I think it is vastly
superior to using a mailing list.

Having a good elastic search community on Stackoverflow is hardly a bad
thing and it is going to be there regardless of what the website says. So,
we might as well embrace it :-).
