hmm, why not using the forums at the source : 
http://www.phpbb.com/support/forums/  ;-)

Regarding data migration from one system to the other , Guillaume (the 
fedora guy who was behind the initial request for the fr.centos.org 
website) is willing to help :  he wrote a script to migrate from xoops 
(does that ring a bell ? :D) to punbb for the http://www.fedora-fr.org 
website/forum . I told him that because fluxbb (successor of punbb) 
doesn't have (yet, but on the roadmap) a ldap auth feature, it could be 
abandoned .. but he said that if that was needed he can have a look to 
write the ldap_auth_hook for fluxbb .

It seems that because of the license, SMF can be removed from the forum 
candidates list ?
