RIP gtk-app-devel.

I hope this discourse thing succeeds. Personally I find it just another
awkward, cumbersome run of the mill QA site. The mailing list should be
preserved. But what do I know? I've only seen about 90% of these migrations to
forum like sites lose users and community involvement over the past 20 years.
Here's to hoping that gtk-app-devel-list will be one of the 10%.

What is the technological hold-up to doing both? Listserves are no cost simple
implementations that should be able to mirror posts from discourse to the
existing list and vice-versa. That would seem to be the way to go until you
have some assurance that discourse will preserve community involvement instead
of just doing it on hope.
