i don't see why we need to "move" to forums. mailing lists and forums
have a different target audience and purpose.

however i strongly support a linux audio related forum - especially for
people new to the subject or searching for help (right now they turn up
on irc in order to make fools out of themselves), an aggregation of
knowledge in form of organizable threads that can be browsed wouldn't be
such a terrible idea.

"we need one because others have one" is a stupid argument. there are
far better arguments for a forum.

i think all that is needed is someone with some (security related)
experience with forums and enough time to set it up and moderate - i am
convinced ico or whoever is responsible for la.org will happily provide
resources for such an experiment.
