You are right, but in any case you can receive, for example, a daily digest
of the new messages of the forum.

The archive is not simple to browse, for example is not organized in section.
You don't have a rapid view of all the answers because you have to open
a message at a time.
Moreover in a forum you have the code highlight support and other visual
Then in a forum every member has near its name the number of messages
which helps the other members to understand the experience of that member.
And so on...

Obviously, I know that a forum is more difficult to maintain than a mailing list
but I am sure that it would provide a better help to the PyQt community and
a boost to the growth of this community.
