      Blogging? Hmmm seems useless to me unless I'm using another definition of
      it (basically I only know those as personal pages with odds bits of info
      whatever the author wants)

      A wiki seems more usefull to me (than a blog) or normal (no offence for the
      jguru forums) forum software. A tried phpbb or FUDforum supplies a lot more
      and easier functionality (they also install in 5-10 mins if you have a PHP
      capable webserver).

      Also a good search function would be nice the yahoogroups search seems to
      have gotten close to useless over the years.

      The wiki part of this one I like.

      I don't think these are very usefull to us. Looking at the feature list
      their just blogging systems e.g. useless.

      > Oh and http://www.jivesoftware.com would be the forum system.

      Would probably require the professional or the enterprise versions for all
      the bells and whistles. Then you look at the price.. think about it again..
      and download some free forum software that has it all for free....
      (Although the software itself looks quite functional after some playing
      around)

      I'm not sure wether it's a good idea to only have a wiki or only have a
      forum. To have both is probably a good idea. Especially forum software that
      does not scare a person away (like the ANTLR forums at jguru did with me).
      Personally I know I can live with PHPbb or FUDforum like forums, they have
      good support for viewing new messages since a last visit, have good
      moderation support (e.g. move/copy/delete threads, edit posts and other
      things that can help in massaging posts in faq like things), you can sticky
      posts, lock stuff etc. Also good support for adding/changing moderators for
      board sections etc. Also private messages are supported. I don't think they
      have a full email gateway but that's something I can forgo. At least
      fudforum has some gateway support but I've never worked with it.

      I like FUD forum (fud.prohost.org) pretty much since it's very light in
      graphics and seems to be better architected than PHPbb.

      The wiki I'd see as the place to keep the documentation of ANTLR, together
      with examples etc.

      Well that's my 2cts anyway ;)

      Cheers,

      Ric

      Dunno whether they re written in Java or not, but the two forum software packages I like are Xoops (see varlinux.org) or geeklog (groklaw.net). They re both

        They're both open source, so you could easily add a mail interface if
        there isn't one already.

        I would also cast my vote for a wiki.

        What I do NOT want is an "any colour you like as long as it's black"
        choice. An obvious (and to my mind good) move would be to gateway an
        antlr mailing list onto the old pccts newgroup. I know it's a bit
        moribund, but it would waken it up again, and give people the choice
        between news, mail and googlegroups. If we then add a wiki as a
        background information store, and a forum that mails the mail2news
        gateway, it gives flexibility, choice, what have you...

        Cheers,
        Wol

        How about a Wiki? I've always found Ward's Wiki to be a pretty awsome
        way of
        structuring specialist domain knowledge...
