Subject Re: moving email lists to GitHub Discussions (Was: [DISCUSS] moving email lists to Discourse)
Date Mon, 11 May 2020 19:33:25 GMT

involves PRs, issues, discussions and all of this stuff.

KISS principle! Also, potential contributors tend to look on discussion
boards and sadly discussion lists are a bit naive :/

So, +1 on that.
