Indeed. Personally, I’m all for keeping the mailing list. See past
discussions for the advantage.
I do think it might be a good idea to move to a gitHub repo once a topic
gets past the vague idea stage to the hammer out a proposal stage — which
indeed often happens once someone starts drafting a PEP.
But a freewheeling discussion in a gitHub issue isn’t any easier to
navigate than a list discussion.
This latest effort will only help if it grows to critical mass — but
newbies can help!
For example, if you see a post here that says something to the effect of:
“this has been discussed in the past on this list”, you can search and find
hat discussion, and summarize the results for future readers.
Hmm, maybe the “we should use something other than a list” discussion is
one of those ;-)
