I second the sentiment below. I am in development on a number of sites 
which rely exclusively on icecast (and optionally a server-based ices). 
The email list is a convenient way to break from constant programming for 
a moment to see if there's a useful bit of information or if I can 
possibly add something of value. I can't imagine a scenario where I'd want 
to search a web-based forum to keep up with icecast. There's a *lot* to be 
said for opt-in email lists! :-)
