What I would like to have is one
"official" LibO forum, either done by us or someone else, that is open

so, but at least I have heard from some forums, where definitely FUD was
spread, and this leaves me with bad feelings.
If this is the only issue, then definitely the best option to me seems
in the primary interest of users. Whetever discussions and hostility you
might have found or felt, when it comes to user support the people
involved are much more pragmatic and in this respect
http://user.services.openoffice.org/ is truly ecumenical as it
professes: LibreOffice is a first-class citizen there.
To me you really need very good reasons when it comes to fragmenting
user support. While the hostility you felt is definitely bad, it won't
affect users, some of whom "migrated" to LibreOffice just because their
distribution did, and expect to continue using the support channels they
are familiar with.
This said, if the Document Foundation has already made the political
choice to create a new channel, then finding volunteers and technical
solutions like it's being discussed in the other thread is a minor issue.
But I'd still give a thought if we can't really avoid the massive
duplication of effort and, through simple DNS tweaking, offer the same
forum under the two adresses http://user.services.openoffice.org/ and
Honestly, my preference would be to have our own forum and see if it
works. If not, we tried it, and we don't lose that much.
The choice is political, not technical, there's no trying here!
