[openstack-community] [infra] Problem with ask.openstack.org

While ask.openstack.org is not necessarily loved by many, it continues 
to be used, and there are still people who answer questions.

Recently, one of its features ceased working. I am talking about the 
"responses" page that lists all responses to questions that I have 
answered or commented on. This makes it very hard to follow up on such 
questions; I don't have a tool to see if somebody anwered my question or 
is the person who asked a question has provided updates.

Is there anybody who can fix this?

I know that some people would like to do away with ask.openstack.org 
entirely, since the software is bug-ridden and nobody manages the site. 
My personal opinion is that the current situation is worse than no "ask" 
site at all, since people might ask questions, get partial answers and 
no follow-up. This can create a negative view of the OpenStack community.

In short, either fix it or remove it. Unfortunately I don't have the 
means to do either.
