Hi guys!

First of all, sorry if this is not the correct list to post something like

openSUSE has many mailing lists and some are very active. I, as a developer,
must follow some to make sure I did not miss an important news. However,
IMHO, mailing lists through e-mails are not that good anymore. It is very
difficult to search for a message (if you did not archive everything, then
you must rely on the on-line database), if you delete a message, reply to
that thread is not very straightforward, etc.

I am wondering why do we not change to a more modern platform created with
this kind of discussion in mind? In Julia project, they setup a discourse
( It turn out that it is very good. In my
opinion, much better than mailing lists using e-mails.

What do you think about this?

I tend to see discourse not as a mailing lists replacement, rather a forums
replacement, and from that perspective I only see replacement of one database
by another. At the board f2f we talked about Matrix, which can be accessed in
multiple ways.

I tend to agree, one clarification though, we were talking about matrix
as an IRC replacement / substitute rather then a mailing list
replacement, we didn't talk about replacing mailing lists with anything
(other then closing off ones we don't use)
