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?

Yay! morale += 1 😂
Yeah, I can't remember if it was a formal proposal, but it was discussed extensively on the swift-evolution list a while back (maybe late last year or early this year, I think?), and the conclusion was that we'd move to Discourse (it has a mailing list mode, for the people who prefer that). In any case, I'd imagine it hasn't happened yet simply because the people who'd need to be involved are slammed with trying to meet the 4.0 release deadline.
Within the past day or so, someone on evolution rezzed Ted's announcement thread on the matter. I'd guess that'd be as good a place as any to start, if you want to try to get "the ones making the decisions" to let you help.
