Should we import the data from the old forum? It may be largely dated and irrelevant, creating unnecessary noise. At the same time it offers some history we’d otherwise have to turn to syadmins for excavation on a case-by-case basis.
I’m not sure if it is worth importing, but it should all be archived in some way, even make it read-only, but publicly available for archaeological reasons. So much stuff from the early days of KDE has already been lost…
Just for the record, Sysadmin retrieval of data from our archives is reserved for exceptional circumstances as it often involves standing up a copy of the software in question - which as time goes on becomes more and more difficult and requires quite a bit of effort.
KDE has a long history of carrying over content, keeping links and history alive, etc. which this would be an enormous exception to.
@sitter This poll probably needs to be slightly recast as Yes / No are missing the nuance of having an archival copy available.
(For me this would preferrably be hosted within Discourse - even if the topics are fully locked and clearly sitting in an “Archive” category) as otherwise a static copy of the old Forum will be unsearchable)
