We have just gotten our first question that requests learning materials: Learning materials for Dependent Origination (Paṭiccasamuppāda) in Theravada Buddhism.
Should questions of this type be considered on-topic? Some SE sites allow this type of question, particularly in the form of "reference requests", e.g. Math, Theoretical Computer Science, and, of course, Software Recommendations. Other sites forbid them, like Stack Overflow. Some sites, like Japanese Language, have a compromise policy that allows a limited number of these questions on their meta site, but forbids them on the main site. Of the other religion sites, it looks like Christianity has deemed these questions off-topic; I have not found any policy on the matter at Judaism or Islam.
All this in mind, should we allow questions that request learning materials? If so, to what extent?
Note that forbidding these questions on the main site does not mean they cannot be asked at all - it just means that the questions should be moved to a more appropriate venue, i.e. chat.
