Forum Mailing Lists

Some users prefer mailing lists, some prefer forums, but having both will cripple support burden and ease of finding discussions. The solution is to have a system that supports both forums and mailing lists, with users selecting which method they prefer.

Right now we just have mailing lists, and these have served us very well over the past six years so there isn't a critical need for forums or combined forum and mailing lists support. This means we can wait till a good solution is presented and proven before migrating. Users with the itch are very welcome to pitch in and make this happen, and this page is the first step towards helping coordinate these efforts, feel free to post your thoughts/volunteer yourself on this page on the osg-users mailing list.

Here's one possible technology that is could be a candidate for using to meet these requirements:

Good luck!
