I don't see a big problem with using a web interface to search for
information --- they're good at that.  If you're thinking that the
hackers community is willing to abandon email as a discussion medium
for a web forum, however, you're going to be sadly disappointed ... and
I don't see how it would help anyway: a pile of text is a pile of text,
no matter where it came from.

The hard part of this problem is finding a convenient way to capture
status data out of the community's conversations.  I think when you find
a solution to that, you'll notice that email is not the problem.

                        regards, tom lane
