It’s 2020, and open source software-managed email mailing lists (think mailman) have been around since the 1990s.
I think it’s time for those tired old clunky, cumbersome-to-search mailing lists to be retired, and replaced with something more modern (probably something Slack-like, like say Mattermost, or maybe Discourse), yet is still Open Source. Or maybe Matrix? Or a self-hosted Gitlab instance? Pretty much anything like that would be an improvement, IMHO. I feel it’s important that it needs to be easily searchable, and easy to backup and upgrade, for whomever maintains it.
If you could wave your magic wand, and magically get some specific development community to quit with the mailing lists, and use something more modern (and more friendly to mobile), what would it be?
Personally, I wish Wireguard, and Debian would get more modernized here. Anyone else have any pain points here, which they’d wish to discuss?
