It is largely the same story with the gimp user group forums.
used to phpbb forums and the software in use seems incomplete. ...
The *average user* has never used a mailing list before as well and feels
uncomfortable with them, take that into more consideration.
"... Everyone" ... "average user" ...
From past discussions about forums vs newsgroups (eg. yahoo-groups) in
other groups my feeling is its much closer to 50-50. My personal
preference is for mailing lists (or forums only if they can provide all
postings to me as separate emails). FWIW: If setting up a new discussion
group I'd probably lean to doing it with Google Groups.
