We are currently in the progress of moving julia-dev from Google Groups to a Discourse forum/mailing-list powered by Discourse.
We decided to move julia-dev first because of the smaller mail throughput and to see if we as a community are happy with the features Discourse offers.
The timeline for the move is as follows:
- Discourse is available from now on and we encourage everybody to post new topics there.
- On November 8th, 2016, julia-dev will be set to read-only mode.
- We are not doing an automated migration, because we want to give people the choice of opt-in; as such, we won't move over previous content or previous accounts.
A common concern is whether or not you have to use Discourse as a forum or if you can still participate purely through e-mails.
