New Mageia forums were announced today as "the official portal for the Mageia community: support, distro testing reports, contributions, discussions...." Any distribution worth their salt has a forum for users to mingle with other users, developers, and managers. Forums are usually the first place anyone with a problem or suggestion goes. So, in the evolution of what promises to be a major distribution, the official unveiling of the forums is a milestone worth noting.
The Mageia forums is powered by phpBB. phpBB is a popular Open Source bulletin board application used by many projects such Gentoo, Mandriva, Debian User Forums (not an official Debian project), and MEPIS Community Forum; so you'll probably recognize the look and operation.
