Hi All,

I would like feedback on the community about possible forum/mailing
list tools that we could adopt for the OSG and VSG projects. I don't
have any significant experience with Gitter but have just started
looking into it - I see that osgjs has a presence.

Would love to hear what others experiences have been with Gitter or
other similar tools/services.

Cheers,
Robert.

I have no experience. I'd maybe suggest Google Groups as a lazy way out.

But it is like a chat room, right? Without individual topics, just a
single room for conversation...

Fedora uses HyperKitty:

( https://hyperkitty.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ )

It's quite cool. Users can interact with the ML directly with the web
backend and it provides threaded views:

https://lists.fedoraproject.org/archives/list//thread/UXTL3INISMOIVYI4JOYVHCEOFLMFC7CO/

With that said it still has to be hosted somewhere...

Cheers

Hi all
Elkarte seams to be a good phpBB successor and it supports ML

Robert,Discourse (https://www.discourse.org) is likely the platform I would choose today for osgEarth if starting from scratch. It is founded by Jeff Atwood (of StackOverflow fame), it's open source so you can host it yourself, or you can pay $100/month for them to host it for you.


Apparently they will sometimes offer discounts or even free hosting for other open source projects:
