We will, but we can't do any rewriting of anything until Swifts server
library is up and running, which I believe it is not (feel free to
correct me if I am wrong).
I'll go a little further and give a +4 for discourse. Or anything
else. My email is filled with a total of 13808 e-mails. 141 of those
are from the swift-evolution mailing list and 52 of those are from the
swift-users one, for a total of 193 e-mails. Do you think I'm willing
to browse all of those to determine what's going on? Hell no! A forum
would allow us to get the most germane and contemporary dialogue for
all the members. Why not just forumize all of the mailing lists, and
not just this one? Make it use only one instance of the forum software
and make separate categories--or forums, even--for each list so that
it's all rationalized. It would save people a lot of headaches trying
to remember URLs.
