I confess that I don't even know how to subscribe to all threads of a discourse.
- [ ] How to subscribe to all threads of discourse
So, I'd miss security or release announcements only posted to discourse and not distutils-sig (or pypa-dev, which IMHO has the more appropriate scope name in that packaging and PyPI are somewhat inseparable)
Is there some convenient way to cryptographically-sign Discourse posts? Maybe with e.g. OpenPGP.js? Or is that unnecessary these days.
Discourse in Python would be great to have.
Having mailing list discussions archived in one's searchable inbox is underrated, IMHO
Being able to link to specific messages within a thread using permalinks is very useful; though most won't even read it

- Will dropping distutils-sig mean that people who prefer
interacting here lose their voice in packaging discussions?
Probably not. I think the fact that most of the list's prior conversation has already moved to Discourse means this is already the case, and so closing this ML is probably more a reflection of the reality that those voices are effectively absent in relevant conversations now.
- Will having one fewer "recommended place" to start discussions
make it easier for new participants to get involved?
Maybe. But as I've seen in many other communities, discussions start organically in a variety of places and platforms, and are rarely constrained by community consensus "recommendations" of venue. -- Jeremy Stanley -- Distutils-SIG mailing list -- email@example.com To unsubscribe send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org https://mail.python.org/mailman3/lists/distutils-sig.python.org/ Message archived at https://email@example.com/message/PCUVO...
