I also don't generally like forums but we think we've found one that can be
used mostly like a mailing list. You can subscribe to a category and you'll
get all the new posts opened there. It is supported also to reply using
email so you don't need to open the web interface for that. Creating new
threads by email is still not enabled as we want to figure out the best way
to do it.

We decided to make the change as the current mailing list service does not
work from time to time and the archives (when working) is almost unusable
to search for old answers. The good thing about the forum interface is that
the answers can be easily searched and even moved to a FAQ or Howto section.
