Resource needed, and don't want to reinvent the wheel
- Apologies for any dups due to cross posting...
I am looking for a resource/application that enables community
collaboration through the integrated use of a wiki along with email
exchanges and archival. The mail archive should ideally be in a tree
format (i.e. with nested replies), rather than blog type entry and
comment format. Ideally, email entries would be taggable to link to
corresponding topics within the wiki.
Moodle has been suggested, and because of longer term desire to make
interconnections between "communities" (social networking with
personal profiling) and across topical boundaries, building something
using Drupal has also been suggested. Before embarking on such an
effort, and so as not to reinvent the wheel, we're hoping for some
guidance that might lead us to a resource (or resources) that can
already accomplish these things for us (or at least a good number of
them) to build upon.
Thanks in advance for any guidance or suggestions you might be able to
