i see a problem in the "branding". debianhelp.org is not the
intuitive domain i would look for. i would expect a .debian.org
address to be the "real" place.
cant we point forum.debian.org at debianhelp? it would not need
to be in any way "trusted" as far as security is concerned.
irc.debian.org is not, either.
