Bug reporting and feature requests which we plan to move to Github issues

Not used since the start of, we plan to remove it
completely. I don't think there is any traffic here.

Intended for discussion about EEPs, originally a limited number of members
but now open to anyone to join. We plan to move the discussion to Github
issues and pull requests here in the
repository where the EEPs are stored.

erlang-patches is not used for anything, should/could be removed
eeps is for discussion about EEPs but will probably be obsoleted in favour
or GH issues and PRs.
erlang-questions is for discussion about Erlang and OTP
There is also discussion about Erlang and OTP on slack, on Elixir forum etc.
