Scandum,

Don't hate me, but curious - have you ever considered migrating to github? This would make it easier for others to contribute to tintin, hopefully lessening the burden on you. Smile

- Community could easily contribute to source code, submitting you pull requests for new features and bug fixes directly (it would also provide an easier way to browse the source code, making it more accessible for most users).
- There is an integrated issue/feature tracker, which (I would think) would make bug tracking and feature requests much easier to manage rather than having them posted on forums.
- There is an integrated wiki, which could be updated by community as well, which could help with easier maintenance of documentation.

There are also tons of integrations:
- Travis-CI integration automates testing Smile
- Readthedocs.org automates building documentation.
- http://ost.io/ lets you use the issue tracker as a forum application
- etc Wink

Anything you've considered/would consider?

I'm thinking about switching to Google Sites and Google Groups.

I'm not a fan of github as I just like to hack around and if someone submits a patch I take a look at it.

There is a github repository that someone is maintaining, it's linked from the website. I have no involvement with it.
