[erlang-questions] discourse for erlang

Sun Aug 26 20:57:37 CEST 2018

No doubt that each medium has its pluses and minuses, and I do like 
email+mail lists in general.  But when you have a lot of content, you 
want to openly show what's going on and want to bring more people in, 
for some projects mail lists alone are probably too obscure and thus 
less helpful.  The ability to show not only communication between users 
and developers, but also other items in a single front page, like 
related conferences, projects, research, products, services, etc., can 
be quite nice.  And the fact that Discourse has been successfully tested 
+ deployed by a number of comparable projects is also a plus.  Just 
saying!  ;0)
