I haven't tried it for a serious project yet, but Discourse is new open
source discussion software and seems quite promising.  It's by some of
the people behind Stack Overflow.

It's under GPLv2 (http://www.discourse.org/faq/).

See http://www.discourse.org/ and http://discourse.org/

It is still in beta.
