No high horse there, just a knee-jerk reaction to "Novell should write a secure PHP based web forum on its own". As I wrote, it's always easy to tell everyone what to do on a topic one isn't involved in. I absolutely love those.
Yeah, but my point is - just because it's easy to comment doesn't mean those comments are not valid.
Incidentally, the software and infrastructure running forums.novell.com is the platform for forums.opensuse.org Actually, as I wrote in my previous post, that fact + Kim and the staff at Novell knowing vBulletin well is a point that had quite some weight into the forum software evaluation.
I can't really follow you here - so the current forums.novell.org setup will also be the platform for the new merged fora? But that's perfect. Then maybe I'm just the one who hasn't got a clue.
And sorry, what I do find aggressive is someone not involved into the process and not even knowing how to write software telling others what they must do, implying they're wrong and too ignorant to have weighted the pros and cons of every option.
Perhaps it's a choice of words - the above may be arrogant, but not aggressive IMHO. But it's not important.

It is the existing platform. And indeed, it was the best option as it's already being maintained ;)
Somehow I've managed to completely miss that. From the previous discussions, I got the distinct impression that something new was being put together. Sounds to me like you _have_ chosen the best platform. I'll go away quietly and shut up.
