That's a simple copy job. A bit worse if you mean that all the content
should be done :) I was thinking of registering a domain this week, we
talked about some at one stage or another, I am gonna check their
awailability. Also we need to find a small CMS system for the website.
Open for suggestions, remember this may also have to live on server at
Linpro, and the forum software.

Okay, I understand what, and why, you and Poul-Henning hold against
forums. As developers, mailinglists are the best way to communicate. The
situation is a bit different for many possible users. I see 2 ways to
solve this for the benefit of both groups.

1. Forum sends daily digestes to mailinggroup, or for each post. (may have
to be developed, but one can use a "subscribe" to each forum I think).
2. We get a good community going, and appropriate moderators in the forum.
They again gather the stuff that needs to go to the dev group, and post
it. They also function as FAQ updaters. This can be done in many ways.

Any thoughts on this?
