developers to put a web based discussion forum up on the DragonFly
There is a web forum over at gobsd.com, which mostly focuses on DragonFly.
I'm ambivalent about having one on the dragonflybsd.org site, myself.

I don't like web based forums. They tend to consume lots of time in comparison to mail/nntp because you have to poll them (explicitly) instead of being async notified (like mail) and the interface just can't compete with a decent mail/nntp client. gatewayed solutions are of course different again.
