Some while ago my question Brewing GRASS with PostgreSQL support? was closed as off-topic. This surprised me, because, there are plenty of such questions here, e.g. :
Furthermore, GIS SE even has tags such as:
Procedure of making a computer program ready for execution
a computer program that installs files, such as applications, drivers, or other software, onto a computer.
As a Mac user with a preference for open-source software, I often have issues such as "How to install QGIS with homebrew?" and so on. However, now I am unsure if this is considered on-topic here.
Maybe GIS.SE requires a more detailed definition of this topic in its scope. The Help Center currently reads:
We are not a formal GIS Software Support Site and are likely to close questions and recommend you seek official routes for support if you:
- ask about licensing, pricing and/or release dates
- seem to be trying to submit bug reports and enhancement requests here instead of direct to the vendor/development team of the software involved.
