I figure now's a good time to revive this question, so that the new packaging community/project manager https://pyfound.blogspot.com/2021/04/the-psf-is-hiring-python-packaging.html can have a cleaner slate and potentially have fewer things to subscribe to when they come in!
On a whim I created an account on discuss.python.org and set my preferences to enable mailing list mode. I'm assuming the "packaging" category is the intended modern analog of the distutils-sig mailing list, is that correct? Is there a guide for former mailing list users moving to Discuss, which covers things like limiting the subscription to a particular category or list of categories, or how to construct your messages so that they end up in the correct category when posting via E-mail?
More generally, is E-mail-only interaction with Discuss working well for others?
