I'd strongly recommend against that. Not because of my opposition to forums - but if we have 
them then IMO they should be on the "official" site.

It won't have integration with the official forums so will mean yet *another* username/password 
and domain to register on.

Whilst in many communities I've seen people "just do it" and it work, in this case where there 
is plenty of ongoing discussion about the topic and an already standing offer to make a forum on 
the official site I would say this is a waste of your time/money.

Ooooh no it wont :)

Planet gives confusion too. That's a bad name to use given planet.ubuntu.com and the Ubuntu-uk
