As you know for a while many of us have wanted to have our own
discussion forums to enable recorded debate and project support
discussions which can be available for all to view. Its a community
thing I think. It would also be nice for webappsec and other mailing
list archives to be on the portal. 

Today I hope we are getting close to formalizing sponsorship for this
portion of the new portal with a company called Tech-Partners.

We originally looked at the enterprise version of Jive Forums
(http://www.jivesoftware.com) which runs the forums at
http://forums.java.sun.com and integrates with LDAP and other
architecturally significant parts of the new portal infrastructure. Of
course in an ideal world there would be an open source forum software in
Java that would offer all of the same features (Java, LDAP, Moderation,
profanity filters etc) and scale to meet our requirements. 

I don't think there is in Java but before we spend $7,500 on the
software, can anyone suggest any alternatives ?
