Re: Moving foundation-list to discourse?

Sounds good to me. As the person who pushed engagement team to move
over, I'm fully behind moving everything to discourse!

it has been around half a year since GNOME started to host a
Discourse[0] instance, which was generally well received.

Listadmin wise (I'm NOT the admin here!), mailman is not really nice
use. If something ends up in the moderation queue it'll take quite a
of effort for a moderator to look at it.

Discourse is free software (including the Javascript) and the
dependencies are also free software.

You can sign up in various ways. First of all there's regular
email+password. It also allows single-sign on systems, like Google
Github, to authenticate yourself. Lastly (and preferred way) if you
a GNOME LDAP account already, you're strongly encouraged to use that
method of authentication.

You can still use email to interact with Discourse, and a guide is
available[2]. The interaction is both ways (sending and receiving).
even possible to make Discourse behave like an mailing list.

For specific questions or feedback on Discourse, please post in the
appropriate category[3].

Do people agree to move this to Discourse? Does anyone have
or concerns? I didn't check with the current list admins btw.

As another data point, all GTK (and builder) discussions have moved to
discourse, and I know the Docs teams are also willing to transition.
GTK has seen much more activity on there than all GTK lists combined
with mailman.

In general, I would suggest that the foundation list moves over, unless
there are actually any serious objections. Perhaps a discussion at
GUADEC could also be had.

If there's no objections, I'm happy to help manage the transition, with
an aim of retiring this list by the end of October.

Comments please!
