Thought I would bring this discussion to Meta.
This question was approved to be migrated from programmers.se to WPSE: Proper way to create / manage gettext (.po, .pot) files?
While the question mentions WordPress, neither the question nor the answer has anything directly to do with WordPress. The question is a general question about tools for generating .MO/.PO files.
Why are such questions approved to be migrated? Moderators, of all people, should be policing such migrations to ensure that the question falls within our specific, defined scope.
WPSE is not a general catch-all for all questions related to web development (PHP, CSS, translation, etc.). Its scope specifically includes WordPress development. I believe that allowing migration (or failing to close WPSE-initiated) questions that are clearly outside of our scope is detrimental to WPSE, because it dilutes the scope, and the quality of questions/answers.
I know I'm probably the "scope nazi" around here, but I would like clarification/consensus on this point.
