    Computing-focused community centered around link aggregation and discussion

    The value it does give is a framework to create features, bug fixes and releases. So if there is a bug or feature request someone can make the change, issue a pull request and in theory someone at Metafilter would just need to sign off and release it. Furthermore people can create bugs and things in a backlog, they can be tagged and prioritized in a clear and transparent way. A lot of sites do this, most famously https://github.com/lobsters/lobsters
