 not be integrated yet, and may not ever be needed.

 I definitely think showing the same forum in multiple groups could be
 needed. Take these two groups for instance:
   - Bear Game
   - Animal Libraries
 Here we're talking about a game, Bear Game, and a bunch of general purpose
 libraries that the game developer uses for all of his games, nicknamed
 Animal Libraries. The Animal Libraries group would have its Animal
 Libraries forum. The Bear Game group would have its Bear Game forum, and
 it would also benefit greatly from being able to display the Animal
 Libraries forum, since the majority of the activity going on in that forum
 that coincides with the development of the Bear Game is probably directly
 related to it.

 More importantly though, I'd like groups to be able to show topics from
 one or more specific tags, just like the wp.org plugin pages. Is this
 functionality part of this ticket's scope?
