Hello again @ all gmx-users!

A month has passed and we have moved forward with our work to move the 
user mailing list to the [discussion forum] 
https://gromacs.bioexcel.eu/. The discussion forum will open Friday, 8 
May 2020.

We are now ready to accept people signing up to the forum at 
https://gromacs.bioexcel.eu/. We will start allowing new posts starting 
from Friday to give people some time to get used to the forum settings. 
At the same time (Friday), the gmx-users mailinglist will be set in 
read-only mode.

We are looking forward to engaging with you in this new format and hope 
it will help the community to solve user issues with GROMACS.
