I undoubtly think a forum is much better than a mailing-list. First, the threads are kept organized no matter what. Second, the search capabilities are much better. Third, the threshold for joining a forum is much lower that joining a mailing-list. In my opinion, forums supersedes mailing-lists.

I'd be happy to host an OTRS forum, but as others have said before; this forum must be official. If the OTRS team agrees, we could just add forum.otrs.org as a DNS entry pointing to whatever server the forum is hosted on. I serve a couple of forums today on our linux servers, and have long experience with several types of forum software.


Kind regards,
