Developer Forum Added

There is a new forum for developers. Use this to post information that all core developers should be aware of (but not bugs). For example, new CVS projects (modules), procedure changes, setup changes, etc.

There's also a new mailing list (tolven-developer) that you can subscribe to that will inform you of new postings to the developer forum.
