As someone who has used mailing lists very little (this is the only
mailing list I've ever used), getting on it was initially a fairly
confusing process itself. Switching to something else might attract more
people willing to contribute. I'd suggest taking a look at "Phabricator" as
a self-hosted open source solution for consideration but it might be an
overkill and would require more time to set up, test and adjust/configure
than the much better known tried-and-tested Discourse.

What if we moved to Discourse ?
We touched this during today's meeting  towards the end.
Right now we have various things in three different places:
1/ This mailing list for general discussion
2/ Pagure repository  for article proposals and discussion around those
3/ Taiga board  to track the editorial workflow
Discourse would replace this mailing list and the Pagure repository, so
we'd have one place to discuss anything. And unlike a mailing list, we
could link to individual threads easily, new members could join us and see
all the previous discussions, etc.
I especially like this for article proposals. More people would be able to
see them and comment on them, and after a proposal gets approved we could
easily link the thread from the Taiga card.
Back in 2017-1018, the Forman community did a similar move   and
their engagement doubled. But it's a different community and a few years
back, so it doesn't promise anything to us. But I still find it
What do people think?
