FWIW... Looks like we won't need to do much to improve the forums.

Subject: SourceForge.net feature deprecation upcoming: forums, DocManager, TaskManager, Diary/Notes
This mailing is being sent to all project administrators, and all users who
have used the Diary/Notes feature. Please forward this to other members of
your team as needed.
The SourceForge.net team has been working for the past few months to expand
and refine our feature offering. The Hosted Apps offering, launched last
September, has been expanded to include new apps, and is continuing to have
a strong rate of adoption among projects.
To best serve the needs of our community, we are electing to eliminate some
of the older site-integrated features in lieu of more viable replacements
we've launched as Hosted Apps. These old features will be dropped after
data migration occurs, on a date to be announced later (at least 30 days
from now). Eliminating these crufty, less-capable built-in applications
will allow us to focus our efforts on providing great service to our
projects, and ensure their needs are met.
We will provide an easy-to-use migration path to move the data to the
provided replacements. We will also provide dumps of this data in case
projects want to do something different with their data. Additional
information on how to obtain or migrate your data will be provided when the
timeline is announced, in a future mailing.
The following applications are due to be deprecated, replaced by
high-quality Open Source applications we have in our Hosted Apps offering:
* TaskManager will be replaced by TaskFreak!, dotProject and Trac
* DocManager will be replaced by MediaWiki and Trac (wiki).
* Discussion Forums will be replaced by phpBB.
* Diary and Notes will be replaced by WordPress.
To solicit your feedback on how the migration should be handled, and
alternate options you would like us to consider, we are running a survey
for the next 30 days for the user base of each of these applications. For
links to the surveys, please see our Site Status post at:
