our forum is currently hosted at Nabble

> How much does it cost?

- Nabble services: zero, but they earn money w/ advertisement.

- For us in general:

Quite a lot, actually:
  - we need to trust them dealing with our valuable forum communication
  - allow them to track posts, identities and earning money via ads

If we switch, our costs will be:
  - maintenance of another service (long term)
  - establish forum/mailinglist solution (one time)

I added you as well to
  <https://jogamp.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=1095>

I personally would prefer Mark driving the task for now,
while we assist.

If it is not possible to migrate the old DB in a reasonable time,
we may simply add references and host the new forum on a new subdomain,
as Mark suggested.

Cheers, Sven
