    Can anyone shed some light on what WordPress.org uses to run their forums? Is there a plugin? Is it a custom job? Is it just some brilliant theming?

    Actually, it's all three. The WordPress.org support forums are run by a customized version of bbPress with some brilliant theming.

    Hmmmm - thanks for the info. *crack knuckles* *fire up the ole' style.css file*

    Any chance any of that is publicly available?

    bbpress and a number of plugins are freely available. I'm not sure that the theme is, though, as it's part of the overall WordPress.org site.
