[Swift4] Mailing list vs. Forum


(Muhammad Mominul Huque) #1

+1 for discourse

To me mailing list is a bit old. Discourse is more appropriate for a
community like swift has.

Not forget to mention, Rust also use discourse. Rust has two forums, one
for users https://users.rust-lang.org/ and one for discussing about rust
language, compiler, projects https://internals.rust-lang.org/

So swift can have also something like those. With the categories feature of
discourse we can organize our discussions very well

https://internals.rust-lang.org/categories
https://users.rust-lang.org/categories

Thanks!

Also, the number of "Views" is pretty important to know! It's a
complementary information to indicate community engagement.
