OT: flask forums app on app engine

OT: flask forums app on app engine

Hey guys, sorry for a bit off topic here. I'm looking for an open source
(hell, commercial even) app that implements some version of forum software.
I'd like it to be flask, but if it uses the app engine datastore, I could
convert it.

Ultimately I need some forum software to be part of a larger project and I
would prefer to not have to reinvent the wheel. Thought I'd throw it out
there and see if you guys had any thoughts.

Thanks for the time.

Very intense but a very cool example of how Disqus implemented their api
with Flask into a forum-like webpage. It was very useful during PyCon.

The Khan Academy is open source and runs on App Engine.  I know there API
is written using Flask, but you mind find some forum elements in there:
