It's very likely that knowledgeable people (meaning, programmers that use this tools every day) able to answer this will be participating regularly on SO. On February 23, 2019 https://stackoverflow.com/tags/bitbucket/topusers reports 5,627 questions while https://webapps.stackexchange.com/tags/bitbucket/topusers reports 36 questions.
