Comment (by netweb):

 Thanks everyone, bbPress 2.x roles are are not the same as bbPress 1.x
 roles, they're much more generous IMHO :)

 The differences between `moderator` and `keymaster` is that a keymaster
 can promote/demote users, and add/delete forums whereas moderators cannot
 perform those two tasks, the current plan is:

 will be a Keymaster at least until we get roles sorted out, but I’m fine
 with only Meta Team having the power in this case. Moderator is enough,

 The #support team discussed the role change at the weekly chat last week

 as powerful as the current Administrator role (it will only lack the
 powers that we never, and shouldn’t, use anyway). As such, we will be
 modifying the Moderator expectations to be more of a merge of the current
 Moderator and Administrator expectations. By unanimous vote, once the new
 bbPress 2 forum launches, the new Moderator expectations will be:

 while attending as many meetings as possible within reason and leaving no
 less than 10 publicly visible replies in the forum in a 6-month period.''

 only, you’ll still have the same powers you use today, don’t panic. 🙂

 bbPress 2, and we will be actively considering whether or not we need them
 as we get comfortable with the new forums.
