Does that mean I have to log in to Discourse every day just to check whether
some new message has arrived? If so, then no thank you.

No, you could still get email notifications for messages, and you could still send email replies; that's supported on Discourse, as you could easily check on their website.
This is a low volume
list, often with two or more weeks between messages.

Yes, the *gtk-devel-list* mailing list is low volume, compared to gtk-app-devel-list and gtk-list. Did you ever wonder why it is? Mostly because mailing lists are kind of terrible. The idea behind switching to Discourse is to improve the communication channels available to GTK developers and users to something more useful than email.
