To answer the original question, Where To Forward issues, probably Scala Center, who are there to facilitate.
I agree that switching modes of communication was a speed bump. I missed the sense of urgency from the email list; I think that was transferred to twitter. I hope the admins can make it easy to use an email interface for those who prefer it. And why can’t I tweet a question? Or can I?
I noticed that the forum format doesn’t have a strong sense of threads ageing out. It’s not clear to me what’s ephemeral and what’s a serious discussion about the future of everything.
But I like the sense that anyone can join and say anything, possibly inane. That’s very inviting. Probably someone is sorry they invited me. On the other hand, while email and gitter is soon forgot, except by search engines, a forum post has extra stickiness.
Even Stackoverflow questions which are downvoted and left to rot will drift out into the ether, ignored until they are resuscitated by someone who exclaims, a few years later, I just hit this one today!
Also thanks for coining
superscalafragilistic, or is that an old one? It captures perfectly those fragile behaviors in superaccessors. I hope they make it a tag on scala/bugs.
