Initially it was the support forums. The rest came when we lost access
to the mail list system and it went down. We've transitioned over to
Discourse, and now we don't discuss much there anymore.
It has forced us to more aggressively hold conversations on IRC,
because Discourse was far too painful. There are some developer
feedback threads on the OpenMandriva Discourse, but it was largely a
It did work out reasonably well for user support, but that's because
historically there were both support forums and mail lists for user
support. Mageia does the same thing, though they run a phpBB forum
instead of Discourse. For OpenMandriva, we just closed the user list
and migrated it to Discourse.
However, I think if we had HyperKitty back then (it was brand new
then), we probably wouldn't have stood up Discourse. Most people
preferred the mailing list and that feeling remained after the
Sorry for the tiny bit of necromancy, but I wanted to give a small
