I was wondering if we could use phpBB for the forums https://www.phpbb.com/ Since it is open source under GPL.

I believe you can. But I'm not sure, I'll look into it.

EDIT: An official source told me that ZetaBoards doesn't host any other softwares. By 'moving' from ZetaBoards to phpBB, it would mean leaving ZetaBoards and losing the forum content (members/post/etc.).

I think we should. Since having an open source forum will give us more freedom. We could add any feature we want to.
Plus with project prism https://prism-break.org/ it will also give security. We should also use namecoin for our domains.

Well the forums is still new, and it's far too early to be changing servers. I'll keep this in mind.

It is better to change early than late no?

I appreciate the suggestion, but I'll leave the forums the way it is for now.
