Hi Mike. That site's analysis of "Decreasing year-over-year
development activity" seems weird to me, since as far as I know, those
common bits between WP and bbPress were only formalized into BackPress
in the last year or so. I could be totally wrong, but I remember Sam
Bauers working on it for integration between bbPress and BuddyPress,
and Beau just put up a site recently. Try http://backpress.org/
instead. Fledgling site still, but Beau Lebens loves BackPress, Matt
loves BackPress, Westi loves BackPress, and it's integral to some big
projects, so I don't really see it going away as long as there's a

WordPress.com gets more than ten times that per minute (I looked it
up) and it does okay. :)
