Re: Unite forums, OSQA, MLs, ... to a single discourse server?

An update here: I was able to finish an import of the fluxBB database into Discourse. It seems to have worked ok.

A couple things left:

1. OSM-based login on Discourse: current forum uses your OSM login/password. I'd like to replicate that for Discourse.
2. The imported Forum posts don't have a real email address associated with them. It looks like the fluxBB database user records don't have email address associated with them (likely because of the way OSM login works).

Thanks for that import project!   I see it as useful to bring forum posts forward into Discourse; not mandatory but just one less thing to check when searching previous subject activity.

Discourse supports oauth, and several tools already integrates with OSM via oauth. ¿Are you trying to do that?

They support OAuth2 out of the box, but OSM only supports OAuth1.0a at this point. I'll have to write a custom adapter to support OAuth1 in Discourse.

Re: Unite forums, OSQA, MLs, ... to a single discourse server?

Having read more about discourse over the last couple of days I am very excited that this gets some traction. I also would like to help with the implementation but I am not really sure what I can do. Please DM me if you have any tasks such as documenting or testing.

I have seen with other communities (e.g. Python dev forum and list) that Sam Saffron from the Discourse team is happy to help with the implementation if asked.

Personally I am most interested in the mailing list integration. I would like to get more involved with the forum and mailing lists but having two channels is not ideal. My main problem with the mails from a list is the signal to noise ratio which was also highlighted on the python discourse. https://discuss.python.org/t/if-mailing … etter/3951

Having an OSM Discourse canary might also be an incentive for some of the OSGEO channels to get a Discourse.

Would it be possible to support OAuth2 in OSM?

Re: Unite forums, OSQA, MLs, ... to a single discourse server?

As general feedback, I would like to strongly support this simplification proposal. Above all, the abolition of the completely outdated method of exchanging information via mailing lists would be very important to me. And to use a modern and contemporary forum software as well.

There is a testing Discourse instance running for a few days, so users can play with it:

Re: Unite forums, OSQA, MLs, ... to a single discourse server?

As mentioned above, https://community.openstreetmap.org/ is set up and ready for folks to join and participate.

As discussed earlier, ideally we will move off the FluxBB platform altogether (it's not maintained anymore), archive it, and encourage folks to move over to similar topics on the new Discourse-based site.

Please check out the new forum and give feedback there. In particular, there is a thread asking for feedback about what topics we should start with: https://community.openstreetmap.org/t/w … s-here/219.

Re: Unite forums, OSQA, MLs, ... to a single discourse server?

I can not speak for other languages .. and apart from any technical aspects - I would heavily vote for keeping the very valuable content of the German language. Dumping or "archiving" it to place no longer generating search results in the most recent replacement of the forum would lead to restart discussions solved and agreed years ago.

Furthermore .. discussing the topic outside the active language forums excludes many valuable voices from a discussion driven in isolation - not visible to them.

Thanks to Simon Poole to bring the topic up again in the German forum!

Doesn't need Discourse (Ruby) much more resources than the lightweight FluxBB (PHP)?

I'm just 31 years but finally getting old: With Discourse I would be over and out for this project.

Re: Unite forums, OSQA, MLs, ... to a single discourse server?

Hi all,

On the language and location-based spaces, people are bringing very interesting input and ideas on this topic

https://community.openstreetmap.org/t/p … gories/310

We need you all to be involved, since this is a collaborative effort to get to something that it's useful for most people collaborating with OSM, and now it's the time to influence the conversations.

Thanks!

Also, we have opened a topic to discuss about the different options for a transition from these forums to the new ones, it would be great if you can engage in the conversation, thanks!

Re: Unite forums, OSQA, MLs, ... to a single discourse server?

I know I will not be using the new Discourse thing. Its confusing and I can't get to grips with it.
You'll probably loose more of the older guys as well, as learning new things at an old age is not as easy.

So I guess I'll be sticking to IRC and engage even less...
