As I said above, the appdb is enough of a forum for us.
The mailing list is the right place for general discussion.

There has been some talk of moving the mailing list to a
system with a better web interface, one that allows
posting from the web, but there doesn't seem to be enough
reason to do it.

Adding one more discussion area would just fragment the
discussion.  Better that we use the existing ones, I think.
