Dear Dag.

In general most of these comments are very interesting and Drupal is
of course a great CMS., but I think the forums (even the Advanced
Forums) does not scale that well.

There is a phpBB bridge available which might be an option.

Concerning Pun/FluxBB I have also talked to the (ex)developer of
Puntal who said that his software is final and will no longer be
developed. Puntal relies on the authentication framework of Pun/FluxBB
which also needs to be extended to use LDAP auth.

But I guess Puntal is no real option as it's no longer maintained.

Best Regards
