DragonFly users List (threaded) for 2006-11
Re: italian community
What is being proposed is a discussion forum, something like bsdforums
just much simpler and with search engine and only DragonFly specific,
which would allow to have english, italian, german, spanish, etc,
communities _without_ having to post to a mailing list, just by
Talking about languages, I think internalization of www.dragonflybsd.org
would be good too (I could do Czech).

Well, I'm not sure what is being proposed here. We have our mailing
lists. I suppose someone could make a web interface for them using
the NNTP backend (if the news interface isn't sufficient). But I
don't want to make the mailing lists themselves browser-centric.
