This is very important point. Now we have, say,  99% developers and 1% users; if
we start a new forum now and then OpenMoko.org people creates the OFFICIAL one,
it's all useless work. 
We must point to the creation of the official openmoko forum; for this reason
using a pre-existent forum is not a good idea IMHO: forum will have to be
relative to openmoko stuff only and layout/colors should be inline with
openmoko.org site.
So, we need a reply from OpenMoko.org people to those questions:

- Can we start now the official OpenMoko.org forum? For example can we use
forums.openmoko.org and the logo?
- If we start a new forum and it works and have success (visits from users
and/or developer), it will become THE OpenMoko.org forum, or  it isn't
acceptable from now?

Who can reply for them?

I don't want split community, i want bring a better tool for communication to
those. Send messages from Forum to ML is a simple thing, problem is reverse. 
Rss feed is a common funcionality in forums, now i'm looking for it in phpbb.

People say your opinion! That's mine.
