Personally, I like "Talk" (I think it makes sense and it matches the
subdomain). But, it could be Forum -- although, I'd vote for changing the
subdomain to match (e.g., forum.maemo.org). There are several synonyms, of
course, though (Discuss, Discussion, Conversation(s), Smposium, etc.
...Noise?:p ). Anyway, I don't really care (except that it was -- very
vocally -- announced), as long as the Title matches the subdomain.
