As a repeat-questioner, I'd be satisfied with searchable and browsable
archives of this list, but discussion forums can accomplish much the
same thing. Or how about just a list FAQ recording the answers to
those questions? (like: Where was that new website? :-)

I've witnessed a web forum being set up very quickly using Zope
(www.zope.org) and squishdot (www.squishdot.org). I hear Zope is
first rate software. Free, too.
By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that
the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
