I don't think we should close this thread, but I agree that we should encourage everyone to move over there, so that the bulk of the discussion moves there. We can keep this thread open in case there are any major announcements. You know, maybe future members of this board will be interested - if we close the thread, we move this project to a much less visible place on the internet.
So from now on, I'll have the link to that thread in my signature so that any newcomers will see it. Perhaps everyone else should do the same.
