The evolutions are always uneditable uncommentable markdown files on a repo somewhere and the mailing lists are in my practical experience inpentrible especially for entries you weren't subscribed to the list for, or were "only" subscribed to the digest for. I wish they were on google docs or a hackpad equivalent. Is there "officially recognised" discussion on the SwiftPM dev slack channel regarding evolution topics?

Yeah, I'm not a mailing list fan, either (at least for long or active threads), and you have nicely summarized the reasons we decided to move to a discourse server. It's just that it hasn't happened yet.

To answer your question more directly, you can of course discuss things on slack, twitter, in-person, off-list email, or in any other way, but AFAIK of you want your conversation to be "on-record", you need to have it on-list. Until we move to discourse, of course.

I realize that doesn't actually solve the problem, I hope it at least gives you some moral support.
