Is there a way to run our own Nabble server? If I remember correctly,
the use of Nabble was originally just a temporary thing until we got our
own forums up and running.

No, nabble never was meant as a forum, just as interface for the mailinglists.

If this is the case, should we be looking instead at a forums (which we
have already done and chosen two forums to pick from -- phpBB or
jforum). Should we not spend our energy and $$$ on this instead?

Not much $$$ needed for that.

we have been discussing this, indeed, but I don't remember the exact
outcome. IMHO, several forums had been tested, and we ended up with, IIRC,
jBulletin, or somesuch.

It was jforum. But feedback was so sparse during the testing, and
askbot was deployed at the same time, so I did want to give a good headstart and not spread stuff too much.

As only a handful people provided feedback, and even less actually
bothered to use the test-installations that were setup, and given that
I personally really like askbot, it dropped in my prioritylist..

To me the question is back down to: Do we have enough volunteers to
manage/run the forum? A forum requires significantly more maintenance
(janitorial stuff, moving threads, dealing with spam, answering
posts,...) than askbot.
