Really great!

"support.typo3.org" sounds fine.

I don't think a separate knowledgebase subdomain is needed.

Could you write a short mail to the Jive developers asking them to have
a quick glance at http://www.single-signon.com/ to know how complicated
integrating such a solution would be? If it's easy, maybe someone from
the TYPO3 community who knows Java would write a connector...

Currently you can make postings through the News server
nntp://news.netfielders.de even if you're not subscribed to the
mailinglists. It would be great if that'd be the same for the Jive solution.

What does Jive communicate with anyway, the mailman mailinglist server
or the nntp news server?

I think some logo-placement and typo3.org coloring should do for the moment.

Yeah, please do so! If you want a news item to be placed on
news.typo3.org and the typo3.org frontpage, get in contact with Thomas
Hempel <thomas at work.de>.
