Would it be useful to bridge email-list content with corresponding forum
content so that each community (the email-listers and the forum posters)
could see each other's submissions automatically (and with zero change to
their current mode of operation)?
I suspect so. Right now I see two different Drupal communication areas
(forums and lists) talking about the same thing, and it seems that it would
be useful to merge the two areas. (Alas, this problem is duplicated only
about a million times over in various web communities...well, I might
embellish a bit with "a million," but probably not much.)
Some existing solutions:
Someday I hope the world can agree on a global means sync email lists and
forums (and other similar mechanisms like Usenet) with the same
content. Until then: would it be useful for Drupal to implement something
like this for its forums?
