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?
Discourse, Discord or Slack are what everyone seem to be clustering
around these days. The main thing I like about mailing lists and even to
some extent IRC is it's a bit more decentralized and is easily locally
archived. They're also built around a standard or protocol instead of an
individual product so it's fairly easy to migrate data from one
machine/client/place/whatever to another. What happens to all the
Discourse posts when the next HotNewThing(TM) comes along? Will all the
questions, answers and interactions vanish?
I'm a bit of an odd ball for a young person in that I still host my own
mail. While I'm not terribly active on here I'd be even less so on
Discourse most likely.
