Seems someone else already had that idea:

Hi Marc-André, all,

A while ago I proposed using Shapado, which I set up some time after the
LibreOffice project started:

To me it's a forums-on-steroids tool. It has the advantage of using
free, open-source software and most importantly, supporting multiple
languages within the same engine. No need to vote to use it, in fact you
can create any other subject Q&A using Shapado in a matter of minutes.

I saw OpenID mentioned in this discussion, it is supported in Shapado
(in addition to Google, Facebook and Twitter for maximum exposure).

There have been major changes in the last few months to its backend. I
haven't been able to promote it or enhance it as I would have liked as
I've been away from the project for a few months now, but if anyone
visited it at the time and goes back now, the changes are obvious. It's
also quite high in search results when looking for "LibreOffice help".
If I remember well, I had also connected its RSS feeds to corresponding
hashtags in and Twitter.

Because anyone can run their own instance of Shapado on their servers,
this could be eventually integrated as an official resource.

Anyways, just another option to consider.
