Mark,

I, personally, could take or leave forums... I don't care one way or the other. 
  The issue I have with this discussion is that you have yet to show any valid 
and compelling reason to change *beyond* "that's what everyone else is doing."

If you could enumerate some advantages, aside from that, that forums have over 
mailing lists, that would be nice.

The advantages of mailing lists, as I see it are:

* It actually comes to you.   You always know when there's a new message 
because it appears in your inbox.  You don't need to go and check on a webpage 
for it
* You can easily locate your last read message.  With a forum, you need to 
browse backwards to find the last unread message.

Using a forum is incredibly complex?

It is odd how these "incredibly complex" forums continue to be adopted
by virtually every other OS, Language and development system out
there...

http://www.gtkforums.com/
http://www.qtforum.org/
http://www.cairoshell.com/forum/
http://discussions.apple.com/index.jspa

(I could give you 1000 examples, really...)

And yet I keep hearing from the GNUStep group that forums are
"complicated" , "useless for regular use",  and "terribly time
consuming".

This kind of response leaves me shaking my head and wondering...
