Discourse is a really great opensource forum, written in Ruby on Rails and Ember.js.
We should try to use it to complement mailing lists and IRC in internal communication, when we need persistent, searchable discussions (with helpful links to the outside world) for a broad and offtopicky subjects.
My aim is to set up an instance (probably in Cloud, but Discourse natural deployment strategy is docker), bind it to our internal SAML for authentication, and call that https://discourse.suse.de
SAML authorization proxy
Deployment scripts (for SLE12)
Setup for demo:
10.162.168.34 discourse.suse.de 10.162.168.34 discourse-auth-proxy.suse.de
