Hi all,

I've gotten some really great responses, including some questions about 
it, which I think is good to help figure out what's needed for the 
community (whatever that ends up being).

I'll start importing the current newsgroups into the forum so that we 
can test out its capabilities in a "real-world" environment. I'll keep 
track of its performance doing different things (like importing the 
English lists' 53000 posts!) and see just what we can expect. Please 
feel free to continue to check it out when you can, including signing 
yourself up as a regular user and seeing the features it offers. I plan 
to have this in test mode until it proves itself, so don't worry about 
giving it a good trashing, I can reinstall it at any time (or if it gets 
trashed easily, that would be a sign not to use it! :)

As for the URL, it can be changed very easily, so if everyone's happy 
with it we can run it at any address whenever you'd want to move it.
