Tying GT Forum to Links SQL and other GT progs
Here are some notes on how I would like to use GT Forum with Links SQL (and hopefully Links 2.0 and DBMan).

1. Common login (I suppose we can take that for granted).

2. Option to redirect a Links SQL search to the forum, and vice-versa.

3. Direct mapping between a public forum and a Links SQL category, eg: in the Links SQL category we could have a clickable link "Discuss this topic", and in the forum we could have a clickable link "Internet resources related to this forum". It would be possible, but not obligatory, for each category to have a corresponding forum, and there would be an overall forum for the entire Links SQL resource. There would be an admin option to make the category editor the forum moderator.

4. Specifically, facilitate private forums for registered users and editors to discuss editing-related topics, like the Open Directory where editing permissions and forum access are both determined by the same login. For example, all registered Links SQL users would have access to a 'General' forum, but only those with editing permissions in Links SQL category 'Hot Pastrami' would have access to the 'Hot Pastrami' forum (but these defaults could be modified by admin).

5. Allow posting by email, like you can in PhorumMail (this is best done by subscribing the forum to a mailing list, it can be very effective).

The main idea (for us) is to encourage use of the Links SQL resource by allowing users to develop their categories in their own way -- provided that there is discussion and transparency.
