Given that we already have email integration with GitHub, this will 
probably be easier to get through the ASF bureaucracy than something 
brand new.

I'm willing to take this through Infra if people agree to it. It doesn't 
look like there are any separate "boards" or tags yet, so the proposal 
would likely be that discussions there would get emailed onto user@. The 
hard part will be getting replies to the thread on user@ to go back into 
the discussion on GH; we might be able to get an "asf-bot" to do this 
for us.

I also looked at Infra's JIRA database, and no one has put in this 
request there yet. So, we'd be the first, with all the difficulties that 

Can I get an informal "vote" on this approach and go-ahead? Since it's 
informal, anyone is encouraged to respond.
