Sounds great, please try to include mailman into the ldap setup, so that a
registered forum member can also post to the MLs (via the forum ML gw)
without having to subscribe separately to the ML.

I assume the phpBB3 forum sw has the capability (like most forum sw) to
define various categories of users so that (if necessary) the posting to
some MLs can be restricted to specific categories of users (for exampled

While I don't think such restrictions will be necessary, including them in
the planning should calm fears of people who are fear a flooding of the
MLs by hordes of uneducated noobs.
