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

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.

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.
