Are there any plugin/addons that would make plone a Forum for question/Answers and a source for help files, patches and scripts, etc ...
Check Forum add-on for Plone 5.1 for a Forum.
Use Plone as-is using Pages or Documents for help files etc
Yeah, this thread Forum/Board extension for Plone contains my how-to on using plain old Plone to do it
