I think you meant to say:
"As far as I could see it in all phpBB forums until now, the messages
are [not] sorted by the date and time [they] are posted, but by
whom they're answering to."
phpBB forums are sorted by all three characteristics: date, time,
poster. As I'm sure you know, any single phpBB forum may be divided
into sub-forums or categories. Each category has threads in it, with
the newest threads at the top (sorting by 'time and date'). A thread
is a group of posts, the first post being the thread's seed and the
others being replies to that post (sorting by 'whom they're answering
to'). When reading a thread, the posts are also displayed with the
seed at the top and the replies below, in chronological order (a
second sorting by 'time and date').
While not a phpBB forum, LinuxQuestions.org is a great example of how
all three characteristics are used to group and display the
discussions. phpBB isn't that different from LQ's default, which lets
you tweak a lot of display preferences (maybe you like oldest on
bottom? no problem).
To add more suggestions to the pile, maybe a new sub-forum in "Linux -
Distributions" area of LQ would helpful. At least for OpenMoko. . . I
don't know where/if the Neo and later devices would fit.
Also, another way to have a usable 'forum' (both from mail and web) is
a Google Group. Google groups offer RSS feeds as well, file and page
hosting, and moderation. Do I need to mention that search is also a
