@webknjaz Hi, I do answer questions from time to time and it was the reason why I thought - for people who come and ask questions on SO, let's keep these answers somewhere where these people will return - SO documentation. For example a question "CherryPy upload file", even though its a very common question, someone asked it (again) in August 2016 . I guess it was and will be asked many times and therefore should be somehow made permanent, therefore we can make it a part of SO documentation: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/38991286/cherrypy-upload-file
If you agree, we can pick the most common questions or requests for recipes (how to upload a file in cherrypy or similar) on SO and publish them on SO documentation: List of CP questions: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/cherrypy

I also agree that there's no benefit in having two documentations, there's no point in it and it can split the effort put into it. I see the current documentation as a documentation for the project, main ideas, architecture, how the code works etc. And I also see the SO as a place where people, who would never contribute to the documentation itself, would contribute to the recipes we can collect there. The entry barriers for official docs http://docs.cherrypy.org/ are quite high while the entry barriers for SO docs are quite low.
