  • Forums are usually not used by active opensource projects,  most of the discussion is handled on the mailinglist.

    Actually using forums is imvho preventing a project to catch on.   So in your own interreste .. please close the forums and move all conversation to the Mailing Lists.

     
    • Why not have the mailing list update the fourms? I know there is an addon to phBB that does it.

      That way people can search the fourm and not ask a question that has already been answered. Just my 2 cents.

      You really, really don't like forums hey? Forums are fare more powerful, especially since it offers better searching from the internet than mailing lists.
