One interesting thing the #yocto channel has on IRC is a bot that 
posts links whenever someone opens a Stack Overflow with a 'yocto'

This was pointedly said in the IRC and I certainly agree with it:

    ------: I realize ------ is asking a lot of basic questions that most
    of us would normally answer by reading the code and experimenting.
    They are highlighting major gaps in documentation though

We often have introductory questions on IRC and mailing list that go
unanswered.  So, having a Stack Override bot wouldn't do anything if
people don't take turns answering.
