  • Proposed plan (summarized from above forum discussion):
1. Set up a testing instance of phpbb3.
2. Traditional forum setup, which will likely be supported out of the box.
3. Skin it to integrate with site at open-emr.org (the header and footer, which will make it appear to be fully integrated into the site).
4. Integrate Mailing List Features:
  • Users can subscribe to individual forums and/or globally subscribe to all forums.
  • When subscribed, the full message is emailed to the user.
  • A user can reply to this message via email.
  • A user can post a new message via email.
  • If phpbb3 sends email in html format, also need to send a text counterpart via multipart/alternative messages with a text/plain part and a text/html part.
5. Strongly Consider integrating a bug tracker with the forum, if possible (to avoid needing to login to each separately).
  • As the forum, have an option to receive, respond to posts, and make new posts through email.
  • Ensure can provide linkable clicks in the description/comments to improve integration with github/git.
6. Place all sourceforge forum material on the new phpbb3 forum.
7. Migrate the testing site to it's new server/home. Requirements of this server will be reliability in both internet connection and emailing (since it will be a mailing list focus, can not lose any emails).
8. Shut down and redirect the sourceforge forums to the new forum.
