Forum <-> Email integration for forum.meego.com
One of the original requirements for the software powering forum.meego.com was that it allowed offline participation, preferably through people's normal email clients. Reggie Suplido, who manages talk.maemo.org, suggested that vBulletin allowed this; but activation of the feature was delayed because of the potential load on the server.
With the MeeGo IT team now managing the upgraded servers, the discussion about enabling the feature has moved on. After a few prods from Andrew Flegg and David Greaves, Reggie has started a thread on how it would work, and the potential limitations: I'm starting this thread to discuss the Forum <-> Email Integration that has been planned for quite some time now. This was recently brought up on the July 12, 2011 Community Office Meeting (starting at the 14:49:47 mark). This might be the best time to discuss if we really want these features, what really needs to be implemented, propose features, and help with the coding and testing.
The IT team took this weekend's meego.com maintenance window to create the necessary aliases, so hopefully we'll see a trialling of the feature shortly.
