Since there are more and more communication channels, I wrote
https://pythondev.readthedocs.io/communication.html to list all of
them :-)

Sometimes, I completely forget Zulip :-)

I think the council should take into account how core-devs feel about this first. Opinions may have changed over the course of the last 3 months, but there was a poll back in November showing how many of us were not happy to abandon the mailing lists:
