I still don't see how this would be a better place than bugzilla.  If
you want to discuss why someone is forking a package, you have to do
it on a per-package basis.  Having a single thread on a mailing list
discussing 100+ different packages is impractical and indeed starting
100 different threads on a mailing list is also impractical.
