Can this be possible that there is virtually no bulletin board / forum software written in python other than the monsterous zope/plone/etc? I've been searching for quite a while and only found requests, questions and such on comp.lang.python but no definitive tip as to what would be a 'standard', good, simple, flexible but scalable bbs solution. What I would like to have is a minimalistic version (like www.minibb.net in PHP) with nothing more then the ability to have several forums and threads inside the forums. No emoticons, instant messaging, file upload, email, etc, etc, only posts. And the threads can flow in a simple linear way. Authentication is irrelevant as I would have to write that myself anyway. What is important though is that it should be scalable and should not hang from around a hundred hits per second. And if it works with apache + mod_python, well, that would be the absolute best! An illustration of what I have in mind is the forum on forum.lighttpd.net but that is unfortunately written in Ruby. Any ideas?
