having not followed the development/discussion too closely, admittedly, but regarding "forum vs. mailing list" for the fossil project itself (and in view of a couple of other comments having some misgivings regarding replacement of email by forum which I share) I would argue for running them in parallel for the foreseeable future so people can vote with their feet (or rather fingers/keyboards) what makes more sense to them for communication: mailing list or forum.

I could easily envision a situation where the forum option would suit me fine for personal/small/modest projects where I also would actually _want_ to keep the whole communication with some colleagues as part of the project, and "foreign", bigger ones (fossil, tcl, sqlite, ...) where I most definitely would not be interested in doing that and also probably would prefer to use a mailing list acessed by a reasonable mail client that allows me to sort/delete/search/flag (and highlight unread) messages etc. more flexible/better (probably...) than what the forum functionality could reasonably provide.
