I would like to resurrect this topic after one month of no movement.
For those who recently joined the maillist, the original post was on
May 31:


which continued on:


and then on:


With a growing number of CentOS forum users we need a better piece of
software.  Let's push forward this movement, shall we?

And this relates to the establishment of the planned internationalized
centos.org sites for ja, es, de, ru, etc etc.  The idea is to use the
same software for all these sites to make management easier.  So far,
fr.centos.org is the only one that is already in place (using punBB).
So, developers, can we resume activities on setting up the next target
ja.centos.org which was started sometime ago?  If this should be a
separate subject, I will be happy to start a new thread.
