I am of the same mind regarding forums. The thinking, at least in my
mind, is for them to be a USER community resource-- especially geared
toward letting the community _support_ themselves with general questions
and sharing ideas about how to _use_ the software.
I had not intended developer communication to move to the forums.
I wouldn't mind mirroring lists like sword-devel to the forums, as Derek
suggested, with a gateway, but I don't believe the forum package we're
using has a gateway mechanism yet. It's opensource, anyone wanna work
on it? :)
Thanks for the opportunity to clear this up.
