[swift-evolution] Github Issues

A while back I brought up the fact that since Swift is developed openly in
Github perhaps the best way to discuss changes is in Github itself.

This was a very controversal topic. Overall my feeling is it would help
people to keep up with discussions and to duck out of ones they don't care
about. I wasn't the only one to feel this way and got some good support for

My inbox is 75% swift-evolution for things I don't care about. I think
things have gotten a bit crazy as this week in the latest #NatashaTheRobot
someone has now built a custom app just to organize the swift evolution


Think about this, someone has felt that following these discussions is that
hard. That not only is two daily newsletters not enough but we should need
a special app for this.

If this doesn't say the mailing list is a bad idea, I don't know what is.
Add that to the face I've seen at least 5 or 6 times the same topic
re-posted as it went on a wild tangent, people lost where somebody said
something important or a bunch of other stuff was posted so everyone
ignored that email.
