There is already forum that exist and they use phpBB technology for some or

For the French speaking one, it will be linked on our support page once the
final version is announced because the admins and moderators don't want to
provide supports on dev versions. I don't know if they have been asked, but
I'm not really sure they will accept to migrate on a Drupal tool when they
seems very happy with the technology they are currently using (and they have
choose). There might be also an issue on migrating the existing database,
not sure it's worth the cost.

There is a clear benefit of having a forum, as there are clearly a lot
of people who prefer not to use mailing lists.
I would suggest that deliberately separating a language team from the
main community is counter productive to one of the reasons that
LibreOffice was formed, to unite the community across all languages.

When the Drupal site has been created I am sure the French speaking
team can make the assessment, and if decided so, migration from phpBB
to Drupal is quite simple.
