Re: [tycho-user] Using Github-Discussions?

It would be a real shame not to use GH if migration is not possible (which I think is probably the case).

As long as the mailing list has an accessible archive (which it does) users can search the archive for old content.

Do you know if there is a tool to migrate a mailing list thread into a corresponding discussions/forum thread?

Eclipse has had a major problem with its forums / mailing lists ever since NNTP went out of fashion [1] / became flaky [2], consequently a replacement is long overdue for all Eclipse user channels, not just Tycho.

IMHO a replacement must preserve existing content so that users can search for similar experiences. We cannot just start again.

So given a good migration, I strongly encourage this. Without an adequate migration, I strongly oppose.

I also oppose piecemeal migrations since they undermine inter-project searches / bug migration.

Perhaps the need to migrate all, rather than just Tycho, channels may motivate some here to solve the migration issue.
