Sorry for the slow reply here. I've been thinking. :)
This part is actually kind of a puzzle to me. That's because I am subscribed
to 68 Fedora active mailing lists, and probably another dozen that haven't
had activity recently. There's no way I can let that be a "push" process,
because I'd drown in the deluge. So, instead, reading my Fedora mail is
alreay an intentional act where I open and go through those folders. For me,
there's no real difference in that aspect.
Now, I recognize I may be in a special situation here, but I don't think
it's unique. I had to do this long before I was Fedora Project Leader.
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.
Yes, we definitely have a problem here, but I think that's happening whether
we like it or not. For example, the design team really centers around
discussion in Pagure tickets. Other groups are actually primarily using
Telegram. We need ... well, we need Hubs, or at least Hubs Lite.
