You are right, they only say it's best to point to a forum. I'm just not
sure what would be the best forum to use.

And I have the same uncertainty about other pages on my project website. On
the main index.html every project has a What's new, for example, but it
would probably be more logical to Blog what's new.

Also by putting my extension on AMO, it now has two download locations. It
may be best to keep it that way, so I can more easily release new versions
first on mozdev, than to the AMO sandbox and finally to AMO public, but I'm
not sure about that either...

to run their website, forum, download location, etc and why. Not only the
forum, but that was the trigger for me, so that's why it ended up int the

I hope that such a discussion can help me to make up my mind on how to setup
my website and help mozdev to further improve the way they present the new
features to the public...
