Problem: An empty site gains no traction. We need sites that have SE analogues to be able to launch with content.
Proposal 1 (definitely MVP):
We need a way to “seed” a site from an SE community in a license-compliant way. Posts on our site need to link to the source post on SE and to the SE user. This attribution must be done in a way that a user who “comes over” to us can re-license to us and drop the attribution back to SE, but that “license migration” isn’t itself MVP.
Proposal 2 (probably MVP):
We need a way to pull updates from SE that do not conflict with activity on our site – new questions, new answers, posts that have been edited there but not here. Specifically excluded: deletions. That SE deleted something doesn’t mean we should automatically do so.
