Still being discussed - not decided yet - but it looks like we have an interesting proposal on the mailing list about the future for the hibernate forums.
- Put the forum into a read only mode
- Add a banner explaining the move to Stackoverflow (similar in content to what's in the post
- Create a Hibernate Team on Stackoverflow
- Make sure all Hibernate related tags and wiki pages are up to date
- Add a "Where-to-post summary" to hibernate.org
- Create a hibernate-discussions mailing list!?
- Update instructions on http://hibernate.org/community/
