no phpBB please, at least v2 which doesn't have per thread search so you can't find anything on longer threads.

If that's the only reason, http://forums.ltheory.com/index.php is phpBB and has per-thread search.
I would use some StackOverflow alternative, there are several around.

i3 window manager uses Askbot for this:

The top question as of now is "What is recommended file manager for i3wm?" and do I need to tell you what the top answer for that is?
Here is one that is open source and done in Python:

i3's looks really, really nice but it seems it's not free ;). The thing I'm not sure of with this is that it seems restricted to the FAQ half of what a forum can do.

We have a wiki too, even though it's just one page on archlinux wiki [2].
It's pretty much up to date with ranger 1.6.0 and contains a bunch of
good tips.

There was a full-blown wiki on ourproject.org (a moinmoin wiki, no
mediawiki; perhaps that's why nobody used it?) but I removed the link
from ranger's website due to inactivity and in hope that people go to
the more active archlinux wiki page instead.

This is new to me.

This is new to me too.

This is not. I've been aware of it and it's nice but it's far from covering the whole of this monstrosity: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=93025.

I think, given that, a major point will just be making sure everyone knows what's where. A prominent link on the forum thread, and update on your first post and a link in the Arch Wiki could help.

That sounds scary :)

But do-able, no?

If you think about it, half of it's just a bit of networking. Once you've sorted the hosting, you'll just replace or augment the default commands.py with a program that trawls a directory and imports files (and, on request, classes from said files). You don't need the fancy load-on-the-fly either, but I think you might already support that ;).
