What can the pixls.us photographic community help DigiKam?

Hello all!

Just an addendum to what Mica was saying, based on this thread:


There might be a desire to migrate the website to something new.  One of
the things that we're hoping to do (as part of paying it back to the Free
Software projects that we use) is to help provide support on infrastructure
of this type so that the developers and project team can focus on the
things they do best (or would rather be working on).  This includes running
and managing the forums over at https://discuss.pixls.us.  In case you
hadn't had a chance to use a discourse forum yet, it can easily be used
entirely like a mailing list if you'd prefer (but has the added benefit of
a web interface as well).

We'd be happy to offload other things if needed (for example, we're hosting
all of the raw samples that are used for regression testing in raw
processing at https://raw.pixls.us - this is a replacement for the old
rawsamples.ch site).

We'd love to help out if we can.  It is honestly the least we can do for
projects that so many of us rely on and use your work.
