Hi everyone,

Thank you, Ingmar, for the kudos on the new look. Michelle turned the 
typo3.org design into a liquid layout which gives the wider forum 
content a little more breathing room.

As a few of you know by now, Michelle is leaving the community, and 
unspoken was the assumption I would too. The Jive forum located at 
http://support.typo3.us has already been very popular (the last week I 
looked at showed around 2000 unique visitors for that week alone!), and 
it's been steadily downloading all of the messages from the newsgroups 
that I set up connectors for. Also, Chris Page got a great start on a 
knowledgebase on the original typo3.us site project, and we'll get it 
manually moved into the forum. Is there any way to access the old 
mailing list archive HOWTO and FAQ sections? Maybe those can be 
incorporated, too.

Jive graciously donated the software for the forum, and it's proving 
itself to be very useful to the community even without a public release. 
  It would be good for the community to be able to continue to have this 
available and public. Since it's already up and running on our server, 
we'd be happy to continue hosting it and help to get the single-sign-on 
set up to connect with the rest of typo3.org. Just let me know what kind 
of access you'll need to work on the connector and I'll set you up.

If anyone has any questions, please let me know. I think this can 
continue to be a really great thing for the community!
