Please keep the conversation on a mailing list where one can participate
without needing to sign up with any particular service provider.

Your proposal would have the effect of excluding people from the
conversation if they don't agree to have a GitHub account. I think it's
valuable to avoid that barrier to entry, needing only an email account.
