Vincent and I (in the name of team), have discussed this
forge project. Just to be clear:
- OCsigen team is running for now Trac (
- OCaml Forge is running GForge and will upgrade to fusion forge in the
  near future (

Trac has some issue with speed and is not as good as gforge to integrate
many projects and users. GForge is a good tool for large forge projects
but is not eye candy at all and is too complicated for average user, you
need to learn a bit of mailman/GForge et al before mastering the forge.

Other interesting forge like project includes Redmine.

Vincent wish to create a forge like project in pure OCaml using ocsigen.
One instance of this project will be opened at, when it
will be mature enough (something like 
and that all the team will agree on this.
