I wasn't going to comment on this, but jive software has built a whole
one-stop-shop community platform. (integrates ml with forums.. etc..)
We (OSUNIX community) were granted a developer license and even though I
doubt it would be the preferred solution I'd happily host the nginx
community. The current limitation to this being that ml + forums won't
be synced until we're self hosting the smtp stuff. The guys/gals at
jivesofter are great, but I know the sticky point is mostly that many
projects/people don't like to use non-foss stuff. (JIRA being another
example which is great, but not foss.) Just thought I'd toss some extra
ideas out there instead of more php spaghetti encumbering the world.
