- [ ] How to subscribe to all threads of discourse

Go to the category you care about, e.g. https://discuss.python.org/c/packaging/14, and if you look in the right side next to "+ New Topic" you will see a bell. you can click that and choose to what level you want to follow new topics (only new threads, notification of all comments, direct notification of all comments, etc.).

-Brett

1. Go to the category page: e.g. https://discuss.python.org/c/packaging/14
2. Click the bell at the top right
3. Select "Watching"

Does this send a new email whenever someone edits a post that's already been emailed out?

No idea. I use the website exclusively.

-Brett
 

(edit) If you change your notification settings for a particular thread by clicking on the bell, that setting is independent of your category-level setting. So, you can "Watching" all on the category and "Mute" a particular thread or vice-versa.
 
 

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.
