I like the idea of a discussion forum - I think they seem to have a
lower intimidation factor than mailing lists and thus more people are
inclined to ask (or answer!) questions... I know I feel that way at
As for forum suggestions, judging by list traffic, I think it would
improve the s/n ratio if the setup/troubleshooting forum was broken
down into specific fora for Windows and *nix platforms, as well as
organize information better. It might also be worthwhile to include a
contributions forum... ?
That's my $0.02 CDN...
