Go ahead and permanently remove the backoffice timeout mechanism, as it seems clear we will not have a use for it moving forward. check-in: 4db38487 user: drh tags: trunk

  *  Because Fossil is a [./concepts.wiki | distributed version control
     system], project members can search your forum archive while
     disconnected from the network where the central Fossil instance
     runs. Your past discussions are potentially just as valuable as a
     wiki document or checkin comment: there is no good reason why you
     should have to wait to get back on the Internet or back to the
     office before you can search for past posts.







  *  Because forum posts are normal Fossil artifacts, you can interlink
     them with other Fossil artifacts using short internal links: link
     to forum threads from a [./tickets.wiki | ticket], link to a wiki
     document from a forum post, etc. These links are internal and
     managed by Fossil itself, so links never become invalid simply
     because your third-party forum software or mailing list search

  *  When you search the forum archives via the Fossil web interface,
     you get only one result for each matching post. When you search a
     mailing list's archives using a standard web search engine, you
     might get a result from the project site's own mail archive plus
     one from Nabble, one from Gmane, one from The Mail Archive...
