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.
