Here my opinion on this topic:
1. For now, a poll like suggested is voting about an idea without
argumentation and without a clear view on the project.
You wrote : "We are talking about a forum to discuss our actions and
activities." , but is this limitation included in the project we will
vote for ?
I am not convince that a forum will ease the problem of communication :
posting information about an event will only reach people going to this
topic in the forum and not the potential readers in the mailing-list and
posting 2 times (in the mailing-list and in the forum) is a lost of time.
Before the poll, we need a comprehensive project on this topic.
2. In my view, launching a debate about this poll at this moment is not
the best thing, as the priority in the mailing-list should be the
upcoming events we are organizing. Cluttering the list with more topics
and debates will contribute to divert the attention of readers from
3. But if finally it helps Ubuntu-be to be more efficient in its
ambition "The goal of the ubuntu-be.org-team is to motivate the growth
of the ecosystem of the people, non-profit, and inter-governmental
institutions using Ubuntu in and around Belgium.", I'll agree with.
