Initial prototypes for the forum code are already in the tree.  It
just needs some more work.

I noticed!  Thank you.

The recent email notification enhancements were made in order to
support ongoing Forum development.

I figured that's why you were doing it, and I thought it was very clever to recognize that email is useful for more than just forum integration. So even if forums end up dropped, we'll still have a major benefit for having made the attempt.

Patience, grasshopper.

Naturally. But even with forums in place, I think there's benefit to putting the existing Fossil ticket and wiki systems back in service. Email/forums, tickets, and wiki individually serve different goals, but they can be used together to implement a workflow management system. Though in a sense, wiki is the odd man out. With good email/forums and tickets, wiki isn't really necessary, but nevertheless wiki is commonly used as an informal replacement for email/forums and tickets.
