Just brainstorming here: May be a kind of "mailing list" and/or "forum" feature could be added to Fossil itself ?
Fossil would become even more an alternative to github+git. Of course this would be a long-term work. This is just a random thought, it might be a bad idea, I’m not sure what to think about it.
