I noticed that Gentoo Forums work on very old version of script. phpBB2's support was totally ended three years ago and it's based on outdated technologies. So I suggest upgrade forum system to phpBB3 (it's official supported and simple).

This has been discussed already, just search the forums. Long story short, nobody has time, the devs have made a few dozen fixes/addons/... which need to be ported, other things are more important and - for now - the current system works.

Searching sucks bigtime, but then again, I don't know any forum where that's not the case and thankfully, Google is a very frequent visitor and has a very good index.

Edit, dunno how much work that would be to incorporate the userbase, but having OTW as a testing ground for new forumssoftware shouldn't hurt much.
