There are already two experimental Discourse instances:
https://discourse.wmflabs.org/ for trialing Discourse as a mailing list
alternative (see https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Discourse )
https://discourse-mediawiki.wmflabs.org/ for trialing it as a developer
support channel (see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Discourse )
The latter has more movement these days (it's seen as a more pressing
problem to solve, also it's a semi-official WMF project) but in any case
the technology side of introducing Discourse is well covered; it's the
social side (finding a small or new mailing list, convince them to move to
Discourse, collect feedback) that needs work.
