Any update to this? I was hoping for a global announcement at WWDC to attract more folks to join the discussions, but this didn’t happen.

A big +1 for Discourse from me as well. I don't want to sign up to the  
mailing list and have mailbox overflow. I did have rules put in place  
to move the messages in a separate folder, but still the amount wasn't  
manageable. Furthermore reading the threads in Mail.app is a major pain  
as a result of different quotation styles used by various authors.

Currently I use gmane.org's nntp servers and the outdated Unison.app.  
However that app also doesn't support the various quotation styles,  
which doesn't help with following topics. I'd be very happy to use  
Discourse, as it allows me to opt-in to any discussion I'd like and  
start/stop e-mail notifications as I see fit. Also Github Issues would  
allow me to do that, but I can see the benefits Discourse would  
provide; e.g. better moderation, pinning topics for recurring topics  
and ownership of the forum's data (threads).
