I have two smallish requests which I'd like to combine into one (still small) initiative:
Some aspects of Fedora asynchronous communication are moving to https://discussion.fedoraproject.org from mailing lists, and new and emerging discussion areas are originating there. We have a second instance, https://ask.fedoraproject.org/, focused on end-user help. These see significant use: the Discussion instance gets around 235,000 page views a month, and Ask about 435,000.
Currently, this infrastructure is disconnected from the Fedora Message bus, which means we can't combine with our normal usage metrics, notifications, or integrate with other tools like Badges.
Additionally, while Discourse has functionality to use groups from an SSO system, it doesn't work with Oauth2. Having group support would enable significant functionality without manually tracking groups in two places, and groups in Discourse can do many useful things.
What is the minimal outcome you would like to see from this initiative to be satisfied?
What are your nice or really nice to have wishes?
All of Fedora, although some groups (Council, Magazine, CoreOS, Silverblue, IoT) are using it more heavily than others.
CentOS currently does not use Discourse, but personally I think it'd be a good idea.
No time constraint, just very nice to have.
