Hi Marc, Drew, Sophie, :-)

Where you addressing me, Marc? I'm assuming so. ;-)

My take would be this:

I don't personally *want* the Nabble/forums to be independent of the site or the LibreOffice project. I specifically see
forums or a Nabble interface as being an important support channel for
the project, and an important asset for enlarging and earning the
loyalty of LibO's user base. Therefore, I specifically want those
forums to be an *integral part* of the TDF infrastructure, and themed
to look like part of the TDF infrastructure.

FYI, Drew, I really agree with your POV that the Nabble should be
"read/write". I prefer forums myself, but given that a number of
people prefer mailing lists, Nabble is the perfect compromise.

If people want to set up independent forums, then I guess that's OK. I
probably would not use them myself. As a LibO user, I would prefer to
get my support directly from the project.

The day my faith in the LibreOffice project decreases, I won't be
looking for an "independent" support channel, I will simply find
another productivity suite / solution to use. Personally, I don't even
understand why you guys feel it's important to have the forums as a
separate resource - I feel quite the opposite. ;-)

Just my own personal 2 cents. ;-)

Hi David:

I was really responding to Drew and Sophie but sure we should all have a say.

I totally agree with you that Nabble should be kept read/write for those who wish to participate on the mailist but prefer the "forum-type" front of Nabble. We should try to accommodate as many different ways for membership participation as long as there are bridges between all modes of communication.

Myself, I like the idea of a centralized forum (or something that looks like it). Again, I prefer this as it really sets the tone for the community feel and breath. When there are a collection of forums feeding into the pot, then one gets the feeling like they should belong to one of the forums rather than being in the collective pot. IMO, however, if they all dress the same, at least we can have a better chance to speak at the same level. We can still have identity and wear different ties but the uniform still spells LibreOffice.

Thanks for your comments.
