I did a quick look but couldn't find that thread (it's in there
somewhere).  The main point of it was that whatever web forum software we
use would have to have bi-directional gatewaying to mailing lists, so
email posts to the mailing list would show up in the web forum and web
posts would show up on the mailing list.  In essence, both the mailing
list and the web forum would be "front ends" to the same discussion and
people could pick the interface they were most comfortable with.

Beyond that, it was all a beauty contest.

How valuable is my contribution?
