Severity: wishlist

Hi,

forums.debian.net, which for full disclosure, I started and host, has
been steadily gaining popularity in the past year, and consequently it
has become a resource for new Debian users with actually quite a good
chance of getting a useful response.

Web forums draw a bit a different audience than mailinglists and IRC,
especially the experience of users visiting such forums typically is
relatively low. This does make it quite new-user friendly resource.

With now well over 700 contributions per month and steadily growing, I
think it makes sense to mention these web forums somewhere on the
debian.org website, for example http://www.debian.org/support#web.
The current list of 4 websites is a bit on the short side in my opinion
anyway, with also only 1 out of 4 websites actually being
Debian-specific. A simple google query alone give a lot more useful
resources for Debian users.

Thanks,
--Jeroen

I've added links to the above site and your site to the support page.

For the moment, I've removed the debianHELP site from
misc/related_links and added a link to the list of support web sites
to the TOC.  Does anyone know whether the non-English portals provide
news or support?
