I meant more that we are dependent on Apple to actually change the existing official infrastructure to some new system. If all we want is an unofficial forum, any one of us could set that up now and invite people over for talk and snacks.
I assume swift-evolution is more of a meritocracy than a democracy - bringing up a topic again and taking votes may do little good if it doesn’t also bring up new justification to prioritize infrastructure changes.
But if we were using an issue tracker, I could mark this as a duplicate ;-)

I wouldn't even know how to find if it has been discussed before because it would be too hard to go back through the history.
>>>> The main factors to move away from email is because email may deter newcomers, history, and threads. I may be speaking for myself when saying email may intimidate newcomers from expressing their opinions and thoughts. It is hard to know what has already been discussed and who is even in the active conversation. Keeping track of history is a pain as well. Searching through many emails to find who said what and when is not effective in email clients. Also, code formatting in emails is not effective. Let's discuss and actually make an action to move away from email if the community so agrees. Of course, recommendations are Slack, Hipchat (-1), and Gitter.
