I think while the project is still growing we would just use a php/mysql
forum solution it would just be a nice way of doing a lot of needed
questions and answer sections that currently are flowing in the mailing
list. I was just looking at the grow of the mailing list in the last few
months and it is growing tremedously quickly.

A forum that contained ordered sections for the various problems people are
currently experiencing:

    1) General Information
    2) Installation Problems / Errors
    3) Compile Problems / Errors
    4) Programming / API Questions and Answers
    5) User Tutorials / Quickstarts / Source Code

The initial board setup easy however if the project continues to grow at the
rate it has been moderators will be needed ofcourse.

Pleaes provide other ideas if still interested.
