[Freeswitch-users] Can we have a forum

I am coming in a little late on this conversation but you can have both with 
keeping the existing mailman system.  I added freeswitch-users to Nabble 
groups back in March.  The same thing can be done to freeswitch-dev and we 
might be able to import the even older freeswitch-users data.

For those not familiar Nabble ( http://www.nabble.com ) allows anyone to 
create a web forum based on an existing mailing list.  After you signup you 
can input your existing mailing list auth info and when you post to the 
freeswitch-users forum it sends it to the mailing list and keeps track of the 
posting status.

Here is a link to the freeswitch list: 

This is a works for me solution that might appease everyone.
