Hi all,

Based on your feedback, we now have a Pulp Community Discourse:

This is still a continuation of our evaluation of whether to move away from
the mailing list as a primary communication method. We need you to tell us
if this is helpful.

We will wrap up any discussions that remain open on our GitHub Discussions
page and migrate any open discussions.

I'm getting everything ready. Please feel free to make suggestions.

Please join us over on Discourse!
