I've subscribed to this m-l as well. Anyway I see no point in waiting to have
this done since an eventual website redesign won't take a day and not even 
a week. Forum transfer and website redesign can be done at the same time IMHO.

I don't know what is the drupal or phpbb packages status in CentOS, so I think
this will be your call. I've proposed drupal which looks to me as the best solution
to build a website using a cms atm. But up to you to decide and to check package's
status on repositories.
