I am of 2 minds, but I tend to agree.  On the one hand, it's definitely the
preference that we use the mailing lists for the reasons you stated (and
also because not everyone has access to slack generally).  On the other
hand, I think an interactive medium like Slack has a lot of advantages in
terms of user satisfaction.  Ultimately, though, we may satisfy 1 user at
the cost of not persisting the discussion and satisfying many users.

I'll go along with a specific preference to drive more discussion to the
mailing list.
