I like the way the user forum is working under Discourse. I think it is 
very easy to interact with it in a mailing-list style while also having 
useful features like attachments, formatting for code snippets, etc. 
Having a developer-only forum would be useful, in my opinion. It could 
be visible to the rest of the community but perhaps permissions can be 
set so that only verified developers can access it to post.
