Great to see a GNOME Discourse! I don’t know if it would be welcome here but this seems a great place to have general discussion on GNOME that doesn’t really fit a GitLab Issue because the project particular issues fall under are unclear etc. For example ideas that are labelled out of scope of all projects it could be relevant to or ideas which violate the HIG and would require a change to the HIG (currently there’s nowhere other than Reddit for people to discuss the HIG with persistent/logged messaging (IRC messages are neither persistent nor logged)). E.g. perhaps GNOME’s general minimalistic philosophy (which I think causes much anger from the community against GNOME devs) could be carefully discussed here, perhaps picking out specific points from the HIG in order to do so to make the conversation more productive.
If this kind of discussion is at all welcome (see these two threads on snapcraft controversies for how this can happen semi-productively, things that are out of order can be flagged against the FAQ and, I don’t particularly agree with the practice, but topics can be temporarily locked to give moderators some respite?), where should it go? Technically it’s discussion about the platform but by the community? So which section would this go in? Or, if this kind of community discussion is not welcome (due to sentiment like this), in which case could some really specific wording go into the FAQ to make it clear that that discussion is not welcome but should instead, perhaps, go on the Reddit?
