Given that most people on this list don't seem to use the forum and thus don't 
notice, how about the people who actually use the forum get together and 
figure out a way to make it work? Alternatively, as was suggested before, we 
could ditch the forums and point people to the google groups interface for 
the wine-users list.

Have a cookie. Don't know why CCing wine-patches should help, unless you want 
patchwatcher to notice.

Right. So the forum software is broken, and all of the Wine devs would rather 
fix Wine than the forums? Sounds like a good case for ditching the forums.
