Will the content of the mail lists be transferred over to these new forums? A lot of useful information has been posted on the mail lists (I follow the gradle-user one quite a lot)
We thought about it but then dropped the idea. You can’t automate the separation into questions, ideas and problems for example.
Our proposal would be to use http://gradle.markmail.org to search the mailing list. Eventually this will become less and less important. We will also organically transfer content from the mailing list to answer question on the forums.
We should provide the markmail linke on the forum page. I have posted this as an idea: http://forums.gradle.org/gradle/topics/hans_dockter_gradleware_com-hkrno
