Better together: Community Blog and Discussion

Yesterday, taking advantage of the post-New Year enthusiasm of our dear Fedora Project Leader, I enabled a WordPress plugin that connects this blog with the Discourse forum at discussion.fedoraproject.org.

If it doesn’t work correctly, well…let us know. Matthew and I are figuring this out as we go, so it’s possible that not everything was configured correctly. Let’s give it a try and see what happens!

Having both of these merged into a single channel makes it easier for community members to see what is going on and join the discussion.
