I'm setting up the forum to be in the daily builds, but there are two blockers before what is available becomes completely useful to the masses;
1. Romain is working on some major changes and these need code review (by Sam?)
2. Markus has done changes to the way security works, and since the forum already has a security system, these should be compatible, and hopefully use an identical system. I suggest that Markus' "read" and "edit cms" permission operate on the CMS, so that
a) the forum needs changing so that its read permissions is based on the Markus Code
b) the forum needs its post permission kept, so that in the CMS you would have three permissions for forum pages (View/Post/CmsAdmin)
In terms of delivery, (1) can be done immediately and (2) can be done as time permits, but Markus, since the daily builds will be available, I've spoken to Hayden and we're suggesting that you can modify the forum code to fulfull (b).
