    <div class="moz-cite-prefix">Hello Pauline,<br>
      <br>
      This is a bit odd - does it time-out? The alternative URL for the
      forum is <a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="https://discussions.zoho.com/eprints">https://discussions.zoho.com/eprints</a><br>
      <br>
      I like your idea about keeping a log - I was thinking of adding
      something similar to our wiki pages. As I wrote earlier, I still
      have few other websites/resources to announce, where all the
      information (and links) can be found at one glance, including
      roadmaps/features election. This will be ready in the next week or
      two.<br>
      <br>
      Kind regards,<br>
      Seb.<br>

                A bit more background on the forum: I really needed a
                place where we can have proper discussions about
                upcoming features. Some features need everyone's
                opinions and expertise (take ACL for instance) and some
                follow-up. Ho by the way, everyone's welcome to the
                Forum. The topics should be about development "stuff"
                but not necessarily brought by developers.<br>
                <br>
                Also, we will likely, in the future, need more forums
                (eg. for non-technical discussions). Will come soon when
                I upgrade my Zoho account (Zoho is the forum company
                we're using) :)<br>

                    <div class="MsoNormal">Ladies and gentlemen,<br>
                      <br>
                      I would like to announce you ... the EPrints
                      Forums (for developers)!<br>
                      <br>
                      The EP-Tech mailing-list is a good place to seek
                      for help to install/configure the problem and even
                      to report bugs. But it is not an appropriate tool
                      to have in-depth conversations about, for
                      instance, new features for the software. So I have
                      decided to set-up a forum where people can ask
                      questions, bring ideas or make announcements (you
                      will see there are different post categories).<br>
                      <br>
                      Important note: the forum DOES NOT replace the
                      EP-Tech mailing-list. This is a complimentary
                      tool. <br>
                      <br>
                      <br>
                      <b>What is it for?</b><br>
                      <br>
                      To discuss new features/ideas/directions for
                      EPrints. The forum aims to discuss ideas around
                      the development of the software only at this
                      stage.<br>
                      <br>
                      ** To discuss installation/configuration problems,
                      please keep on using the mailing-list **<br>
                      <br>
                      <br>
                      <b>How can I use it?</b><br>
                      <br>
                      The forum is open to everybody - you don't need to
                      sign up to post but I highly encourage to -at
                      least- sign in with your Google/Facebook/Yahoo
                      account to keep a trace of who's starting a
                      conversation.<br>
                      <br>
                      You may also vote on posts - a useful way to view
                      popular issues/features.<br>
                      <br>
                      <br>
                      <b>Where is it?</b><br>
                      <br>
                      <a moz-do-not-send="true" target="_blank"
                        href="http://forum.eprints.org/">http://forum.eprints.org/</a>
                      will redirect you to the forum.<br>
                      <br>
                      <br>
                      <b>What happens next?</b><br>
                      <br>
                      I will be setting-up some extra forums in the near
                      future to allow more narrowed-down topics (e.g. a
                      divide between short-term and long-term features).<br>
                      <br>
                      I am also in the process of setting up some extra
                      resources for developers:<br>
                      <br>
                      - a centralised web-site to easily find
                      information about the API, HowTo's, etc.<br>
                      - a few pages describing the current road-maps for
                      the short-term release (3.3.13) and the long-term
                      release (4)<br>
                      <br>
                      I hope this forum to complement these activities
                      especially the election of new features for the
                      upcoming releases.<br>
                      <br>
                      <br>
                      <b>Moderation</b><br>
                      <br>
                      I'm currently the only moderator.
                      Abusive/spam/dodgy posts will be deleted without
                      warning.<br>
                      <br>
                      <br>
                      I hope you will find this useful and don't be shy
                      to bring your ideas forward :-)<br>
                      <br>
                      Enjoy,<br>
