GitHub New Discussions Forum...Potential To Attract New Eyes?

Example: https://github.com/zeit/next.js/discussions

Article about it: https://dzhavat.github.io/2020/04/04/my-thoughts-on-github-discussions.html

Discussion benefits are obvious, but how about not so obvious benefits such as marketing?

I assume Git will have a new kind of algo for looking at highly discussed and popular projects…? Optimistic? Well even so, discussion can be linked to.

Thoughts?

And maybe we should all log in, star, follow etc.

Just noticed https://github.com/maidsafe uses maidsafe.net and not safenetwork.tech

Could dev forum activity move there… bit to geeky to expect mainstream but useful pull on tech crowd… if… those forums are discoverable??..

Yeah that’s what old mate was saying in that other article. I suppose there would be pros and cons.

Could we achieve the best of both worlds and have Somone post Dev forum major updates in that discussion forum on git? Would it even be worth it?
