That was me. The offer still stands, if required. I'd be willing to put in
the time to set up the forum as a draft and wouldn't object to a decision to
take it down if it is deemed uneccessary for OSM. Also willing to take
responsibility for ongoing forum administration or to handover
responsibility to a more established OSM contributor, as required, once the
system is in place.
It is clearly a contentious issue. I won't be arguing the points for and
against an OSM forum - I'm just offering to do whatever I can to help.
