5. forums of edevelop - how would we get xsm to handle that with minimum pain
(don't say we need to write our own forum engine!)

The easiest is to use any forum you want, theme it the same and then
link it from the site menu (nav external links even higher on TODO). The
thing with forums is that folk will likely want anon access, which is
what I have not yet solved. If not then it is simply a case of defining
a forum document definition.

But doesn't this also imply that the forum will have a different set of users as the main site? So anyone that creates an account to edit the news page will need to create a second account to write in the forums?


Unless we tie them all to the same authentication system, yes. Thus a
quick but not optimal setup.
