I just noticed this:
The FreeBSD Forums Administration team just upgraded the forum software
from phpBB to Xenforo.
They migrated 260,000, this is a huge achievement!

Xenforo is nice stuff, so hopefully more FreeBSD core developers can take
advantage of the
forums, in addition to the traditional mailing lists.
