Never posting, but I was (sometimes) reading these lists
via news.gmane.io in thunderbird newsgroups pane.
Thunderbird folders are in my user space,
so it was receiving these talks kind of "at home"
and they were on my everyday mouse's path.

A Discourse wont be on my everyday mouse's paths at all.
I wont probably read these "news" anymore.

But I use Discourse for another FOSS i'm more busy with,
and it's OK as a QA tool.
The mainteners of that other discourse had imported previous email lists
as archives in the Discourse, where it's possible to search them.
Sometime it's usefull.
+ For email afficionados, there is an efficient "receive new posts by mail" 
and also a very limited and hazardous "answer by mail" ability
(limited and hazardous because it "cleans" and deletes parts of the posted

As we have been communicating during the past few months GNOME's Mailman
platform is being decommissioned (python2 deprecation, major burden in
managing lists spam). The deadline is currently set to the end of October
2022. Mailing list subscribers are invited to migrate to GNOME's Discourse
instance [1]. Neil made sure [2] to create a set of tags you can re-use to
initiate a new topic in the new platform, if a tag is missing please reach
out to me directly.

Jehan (from the GIMP Team) kindly provided some instructions you can follow
[3] in order to safely migrate your reading workflow to Discourse. The new
platform supports several login methods including your GNOME Account and
other major OpenID providers.

After the deadline of the end of October Mailman archives will remain alive
in read only mode for posterity. If the mailing list was used behind an
alias, please let me know so we can re-do the same setup but on Discourse


P.S All the l10n lists are still pending code changes in damned-lies, the
deadline to decommission those lists may slip by a week or two depending
how soon those changes will be made available in DL codebase
