Okay, a short status update without having to ask for it wouldn't be
that bad :()

Don't you think 2 years of evaluation is enough?

The fr. subsite users are quite happy with pbpBB afaik.

Have you already checked the migration script? I personally won't care
about merging that much atm. Setting up an LDAP and porting the XOOPS
accounts to it would already work. We just need a little user
management frontend to create form accounts.

If we start off with that, we could continue working on porting the
other apps (is there anything else than moin, bugtracker and trac
necessary?)
