FluxBB seems to be a fork of PunBB which is currently used on fr...org
(Fabian, you was involved in this attempt I guess).

I am not sure if the Portal Software for FluxBB (which is also Puntal
I guess) is still maintained and/or if there are any alternatives
available. I am also not sure why a relatively small project like
PunBB has been forked.

Maybe Guillaume could join the discussion to point that out.

Best Regards
