I must have missed something: When was it decided that forums are a
good idea? I don't have time to keep up with the mailing lists, let
alone a forum. Will I not be able to lurk while keeping up with
things, or will the mailing list continue as before?

I'm hoping the forums don't mean that all the youngsters will
disappear, leaving us hairy-knuckled old timers to occupy the
Internet's back alley. What about mirroring, as (I think) was used on
ubuntu-users for a while?
