The ML has serious problems -- my reply to Carlos didn't seem to have
made it. Anyway...
Vanilla for discussion doesn't sound bad. Here are my concerns, though
(I don't know much about the Vanilla core, do excuse me if anything
sounds too trivial):
o Does Vanilla generate static HTML files? If not, it could be a problem.
o From what I see, it doesn't have a threaded comment system. Bad.
o Lacks RSS/Atom feeds (correct me if I'm wrong)
Moreover, I don't know how the weblog format would suit a discussion
which would eventually have many users. Any examples of relatively
large projects using this format?
