This is the initial post to the newly established SQLite Forum. The purpose of this post is to test the system to make sure I have set it up correctly. # About This Forum is powered by [Fossil](https://fossil-scm.org), the same version-control system that manages the SQLite source code. See the [Forum Documentation](https://fossil-scm.org/fossil/doc/trunk/www/forum.wiki) for additional information. The intent is that this forum will eventually replace the mailing lists. ## Advantages of the Forum 1. Improved control of spam. 2. Easy for anonymous passers-by to post messages and/or view historical content without having to sign up. 3. Built-in search 4. Messages can be formatted using plain-text, Markdown, or Fossil-Wiki. Hyperlinks can be embedded. The message can be previewed prior to posting. 5. Messages can be edited if mistakes are discovered after posting. 6. Email notification of new content is provided as an option, but is not required. 7. Mobile friendly ## Possible annoyances for people who like mailing lists 1. Though inbound messages arrive in your email in-box, you cannot reply directly via email. You *must* visit the website in order to post a new message.
