​I think some balance is needed here. Every so often discussions on the
mailing list get so disorganized and slide into so many irrelevant things I
can't afford to participate​. I think the PR thing should at least be tried
and MAL/Ben haven't provided any pertinent arguments against making a
github account anyway.

​Plus the PyPA shown willingness to accommodate feedback from the
mailinglist​. I'd expect draft updates will be posted once in a while on
distutils-sig for people who don't have a web browser or github account.
