I reiterate my suggestion for a "modern" forum like BBPress, where
you can subscribe via RSS to individual threads, where threads can be
tagged, where searching is much less of a pain than with a mailing
But that didn't elicit any interest.
I know several people, who have quite a bit of interest in ufs, but
who just won't subscribe to mailing lists. This poses a real
difficulty with the uf process
"post something to the microformats-discuss (http://microformats.org/
mailman/listinfo/microformats-discuss/) mailing list or any other
public channel (see http://microformats.org/discuss/)"
As I'm not really sure there is an appropriate "any other public
channel" (does a blog count?)
