I would not suggest to include all forums in bbs.archlinux.org but few
selected related to this mailing list. The mail2forum software can do
it. As an example I would select these forums only:
CD/FTP Installation
Package and Security Advisories
User Contributions
General Programming Forum

If we don't user-contributions but another web bbs, then following
forums could be included from usercb:
Project Discussion

When I joined today this mailing list seeing the big number of mails in
the archive, would have been nice if all in a web bbs where easy to
search and mails in assigned categories & forums. This is why I like the
idea of mail2forum... combining mlist and forum (bbs) thereby having a
easy to use "archive" and fast communication.
