Which forum for the new camera ?

Forget the speculation regarding technical specs. The real questions are . . .

If the new camera is fully capable of using m4/3 and 4/3 lenses and is a hybrid rather then a mirrorless m4/3 with an adapter, then to which DPR forum will it belong ?

m4/3 (I thought) was a lens/mount specification and not specifically related to being mirrorless EVF.

Perhaps the "m" should now be with reference to "mirrorless" rather than "micro". In which case the new camera should live with Micro Four Thirds Talk. I'm sure the folk there will be happy with that, and a minor re-name of the DPR forum to Mirrorless  Four Thirds Talk

Or perhaps a new Forum will be appropriate, dedicated to Imaging with 4/3 lenses.

What will happen with Andrew's weekly 4/3 DSLR Images forum where one of the rules is
"No Micro4/3!" Andrew, how will you define a hybrid camera ?

Olympus will almost certainly place their new offspring within their OM-D family. But where should DPR place it ??
