than something like discourse.

That archive has been retired, though it's still online for some time 
yet. Try this one for a much better experience, with search:

It's harder for those of us who actively maintain the software as part 
of our daily routine to switch from a "push" to a 'pull" model for these 
things, but it is absolutely easier for people only looking to ask a few 
questions and get answers - that's for sure.

That said, I rely entirely on email from GitHub to stay abreast of our 
code changes and pull requests. I think I'd be sunk if I had to use the 
activity feed on GitHub's website.
