I can't answer with statistics. But following the talk of the people
it seem the days of the "e-mail" has counted. Not sure if it does
matter in the case of Commons, but we can only know if we try. Anyway,
I don't want to advocate here. I just wanted to say I have reserved
this page and it is for use for this project, if it wants to use it.
If not I am fine with this. Personally I think using these tools can
help brining in new committers, but of course I cannot know.
