at ardour.org, we recently switched from using Drupal forums to Discourse.
The results have been delightful. We managed to get single sign on
integration with our existing site working, which was important for us, but
probably not so much for a GTK Discourse. More notably, once you figure out
how to get the settings right, the integration with email was also a
pleasure. The move has definitely made our forums more active, easier to
manage, nicer to interact with and has also largely solved the spam
problems that we had before, even when we used Mollum. So ... although our
needs and goals were slightly different from yours, I can say that for us,
the move was very successful and we like Discourse very much.
