I'm engaged and a regular contributor, and I'm not visiting even pagure
regularly. I follow it via email and jump in directly from the email
link as I notice things. I have to schedule time on a regular basis
during design team meetings to triage it, because I otherwise rarely
look at it. Pagure is the main system my team uses to communicate and
get things done.
You cannot assume just because someone is engaged in the project now
that they will happily go off to some other system and model and
transfer that there. Especially when the system driving their regular
enagement is as universal as email. You can't compete with that with a
silo system. Even Slack has fallen, but for a while it had that factor
because people would have multiple projects they'd connect to with it
so it had value across multiple projects / facets.
The age of having people manually poll web-based systems is the past.
The main methods I can think of to maintain that is dopamine hits or
charging money so they need to connect regularly to get their money's
worth. We don't have the creepiness factor to do dopamine hits, and
we're not going to charge money.
Also consider someone engaged will now have to use two separate
systems, and the logic as to which system a given team is on is
non-existent, so it'll be a new guessing game for a beginning
contributor to figure out where to go.

Those who are engaged and want to be regular
contributors are already in a routine where visiting these sites
regularly is going to happen.
