It is not a Mageia activity. I don't know...

The old messages are in a section of that forum, not related to the
lists, as much as I have seen.

Yes. We have a web gui where you can subscribe to the lists:

As you can see all these lists are platforms of contributors. The
forum will be mostly for userland but as we have seen at Mandriva we
need a bridge between these entities.

Again, your mileage may differ. I have been running phpBB3 with
MandrivaUser.de for a year now, no problems at all + it is easy to
customize + it plays nicely with LDAP, which is essential.

But I think the (technical) forum people can say more about this.
