[GRASS-dev] Should we use GitHub Discussions?

Dear all,

What about enabling GitHub Discussions [1] on grass repo? Enabling is easy
[2], so the question really is, do we want them? They are for open ended
discussions, questions, etc. Right, like mailing list, but on GitHub. We do
get asked periodically for a web-based (as opposed to email-based) forum
which is what GitHub Discussions can fulfill. I'm not saying we should
abandon the mailing list, but GitHub Discussions may be easier for some
users, so it would open another avenue for people to ask or get engaged on
a platform we are already using anyway.
