Re: italian community

The forums would serve for pure user-2-user communication. Its clear that to communicate with the devs, submit bugs, or other development related stuff one has to use the mailing list. To combine with mailing list, the forum could have a web interface to post to the mailing list. I dont think you guys have to be bothered with questions such as. "how do i set service xxx to start during boot?" or "why doesnt my mouse work in Xorg?", the fact that there could be multilingual communities is in my opinion a good idea because italians could speak italian, german to german in their native language without being bothered with translation.

What is being proposed is a discussion forum, something like bsdforums just much simpler and with search engine and only DragonFly specific, which would allow to have english, italian, german, spanish, etc, communities _without_ having to post to a mailing list, just by registering.

as said many times before: we don't want diversity in communication media. developers and other members of the community do not like web fora. those two facts combined mean that there is no point in creating a forum:

1. no developers will use it, thus problems will not be solved
2. developers AND forum users will be upset, because they can not communicate with each other anymore

1. don't make a forum
2. create a forum which uses the mailing lists as backend
