Please, PLEASE, let's not start this again.  It's been discussed
multiple times in the past.  The short of it is: mailinglists are
better for devs, and devs wouldn't frequent  forums.  So, Forums would
be the 'blind leading the blind'... or 'partially sighted' leading the

I know people like forums. Heck, I'm one of them.  But, the devs have
said 'no official forums'.  If a link were put on the mythtv.org site,
it would lead people to believe that they can get answers there (from
devs), but devs don't use forums.

Giving the link to mythtvtalk was a good idea, but let's please leave
it at that. We don't want yet _another_ long-winded thread about
forums vs. maillinglists.  It's been done, and done to death.
