IMO, the posting issue has received the attention it was due.

I second Shyamgopal's suggestion (his Google+ posting) to attend the
PLUG meeting tomorrow.
(I am Mumbai based otherwise I would have attended it definitely)

My personal opinion, we have the following thing going for us:

Pros:
(a) we already have a mailing list,
(b) people are familiar with it,
(c) the archives are public and visible to any search engine
(d) *any* email account works with mailman

What is needed - fix it's configuration.

The Cons on other proposal(s):
(1) Google+ requires a Google account.   Although it is free, I know
some who want to stick with their old accounts.
(2) *all* members here may not sign up in the new forum(s) - inertia.
I know this from personal experience with two lists.

Let us not rush into starting parallel activity.   Let us work
together to make it "the" forum @ Pune for discussing Linux and other
FOSS related topics.

Forking should be the last option (if anyone sincerely feels that
there are no changes after the meeting and discussion thereof)

PS - Although I do participate in forums @ LinkedIn  etc., I prefer
the push mode of mailing lists.
