There's a big mail thread on fedora-devel about using a web forum
software called Discourse instead of mailing lists. The idea is that
it would invigorate the Fedora community by encouraging younger people
raised on social media and mobile platforms to contribute. One of the
targets they have mentioned is the user list, because of its nature of
short term question and answer topics. There has been push-back by
developers because they have their custom solutions all working great
around email lists for doing their work.
I'm not a Developer, I'm just a Fedora user and I'm subscribed to
several mailing list from the Fedora Project, including the mailing
list related to Development discussion on Fedora.
I rely primarily on GMail Web client, I use filters to get all the
emails sorted by mailing lists. To be honest I don't see the need to
move the discussions from mailing list to any forum alike driven
And I share other members views from members of this list and the
devel list: If this mailing list or any other is ditched in favor of
this new shinny thing I don't plan to move to that and will stop
reading and attending discussions.
I'm wondering how the people who regularly use fedora-users
list feel about that. Which would you prefer? Unfortunately, it's an
either / or proposal, because there is no interface in Discourse for
emails from an email list to be put in their forums, though they do
have email notification for new web messages. Would you willingly or
reluctantly migrate to the new platform?
From what I read on these threads:
* It is not possible to start discussions from a mailing list so that
it can appear on Discourse.
* Despide having a _mailing list_ mode it does not fit or actually
lack some features mailing list have, so for me is not a good
replacement contrarily to what was stated on one of these threads.
There is a new thread on Discourse that was created to address a topic
on non English languages category and I don't plan to participate
Polite as usual,
