> Subject: Solution for mailinglist archive
> Hello,
> We've been looking for a solution to the mailinglist archive/forum  
> being unavailable that we can offer back to the community. This  
> week we found a forum that automatically pulls from a newsgroup,  
> and individual posts can be added to a knowledge base. As a test,  
> I've set up a forum and imported the TemplaVoila mailing list, plus  
> created a KB article from one of the posts. It supports keyword  
> searching for the forum and KB simultaneously, advanced searches,  
> plus multiple levels of categories and subcategories for both the  
> forum and KB so we can have a forum for each mailing list.
> Please take your time to check it out and let me know what your  
> thoughts are. The URL is: http://support.typo3.us:8080/jive/
> I've created an admin user for anyone to log in and check out the  
> system. The username and password are: typo3/typo3
> We'll host this as a gift for the T3 community, so any suggestions  
> on making this better for all will be greatly appreciated. It's  
> very stylable, so we'll make it fit in very nicely with the new CI!
> Its features include: automatic pull from newsgroup, automatic post  
> to newsgroup from logged in users (as long as the user is signed up  
> to post on the mailing list), and an RSS feed for each forum, post  
> and KB article, ability to watch posts and threads, and for users  
> to suggest posts to be turned into KB articles. Lots of big  
> companies are using this, including:
> Apple: http://discussions.apple.com/index.jspa
> Amazon: http://developer.amazonwebservices.com/connect/index.jspa
> BBC: http://newsforums.bbc.co.uk/nol/
> Oracle: http://forums.oracle.com/forums/
> HP: http://devresource.hp.com/forums/index.jspa
> IBM: http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/community/
> It's normally a $18,950 (USD) application, but Jive Software is  
> donating it to us because T3's an open source project, and Jive is  
> a big supporter of open source (and has donated a lot of time to  
> open source projects).
> Cheers!
> Alex Heizer
> p.s. I apologize if I missed anybody, I wasn't sure who to send  
> this to. Please forward this on to anyone you think would like to  
> read this.
