After over a year of negotiation, Red Hat and CDCK, the company behind the Discourse forum software that powers this site, have finally come to an agreement, and we are going to be on the DIscourse for Enterprise plan.
This will give us a number of things. First and most basically, Ask Fedora is already over the limit for traffic on the previous “Enhanced Business Plan”. This will cover that. It also will enable us to have more moderators, and some more fancy plugins — including possibly automatic translations.
This will also facilitate the planned merge of this site and Ask Fedora, which is at this point long overdue.
The paperwork was just finalized, so stay tuned for actual plans and changes.
