Re: Forum?

In my view, forums and email lists are just different.  They are best
at solving different sorts of problems.  I suspect that email lists
are probably better at more things than forums, but there are

I would not expect forums to eclipse the email lists, but they might
be an additional resource. Just as Frauerpower hosts a community wiki,
so too if people get impatient, people could host community forums and
we could link to them :-)

I second this comment.

I do like the push style of mailing lists over the pull method of
forums..  although there is no reason that either cannot offer both.

Considering there is an existing mailing list http://gmane.org/ would be
a good option in my view.  Forum style for those who like to do things
on a web interface and integration to mailing lists for us who prefer
client based.

I would be happy to work out what is required and make it happen if desired.
