In what is actually a stunning move here, I now have to put up forums. That is not difficult at all. There is greater difficulty in the things that will "wrap around" the forums (largely other pages and blocks).

Part of this is the common problem of using a vocabulary that is in use for other node types (and is required). It would be so much nicer if I could use the same vocabulary as there is considerable investment already in it.

Right now I can see some possibilities:
1) add "forum" to the current vocabulary, delete the current forum vocabulary and let it find the existing one (there is code in the forum module to do this), hope that the "required" attribute doesn't cause problems.

2) Create a module that will clone the vocabulary and with hook_taxonomy, keep it in sync.

Before I go too much farther on either one, I'd like to know what others have done to solve this issue. I know it is a common one from searching DO.
