<vnicent_cassel>It may be. I'm going to check this and I'll come back for help if necessary. Thank you.
<zybell_>It is a few years since, but I once had a sys with a cardreader on usb where all drives where ever present, but IOERRd if no card was inserted and fsck freaked absolutly out about this especially as it could not read a size from the drive. I had to disconnect that thingy while booting.
<ryanprior>How do Guix maintainers feel about project infrastructure? Is it preferable that somebody like myself should just volunteer to run a Discourse server for the Guix community if I think it's a good idea, or would it be wise to consult the GNU project sysadmins on a good course of action, or is there a formal process for setting up services?
<bavier`>ryanprior: generally the mailing list is the preferred medium.
<bavier`>however if Discourse can act as a bridge between the mailing list and the forum-type website, I'd consider supporting it
<ryanprior>Discourse is basically a forum, but it has features more associated with chat or wikis: community-edited topics, live updates, integration with other services, etc. So the Discourse could compliment the mailing list and serve as a knowledge base and forum.
<bavier`>what many here don't want is to generate a divide
<bavier`>something that complements rather than integrates with would tend to do just that, IME
<ryanprior>You can integrate Discourse with mail. You can subscribe to topics via e-mail to create a new mailing list with Discourse as the "back end," and you can mirror existing e-mail lists on Discourse.
<bavier`>if someone sent a mail to guix-devel or email@example.com, would Discourse pick up on that, creating a new forum topic or threading into an existing as appropriate?
<bavier`>(sorry for the barrage of questions. I'm genuinely curious, and it seems like you're knowledgeable)
<ryanprior>It can be configured a lot of ways, and that's an option, but I don't know how to do that without Discourse being the "back-end" to the mailing list, and we'd want to experiment with it before talking about taking that step. We could maybe start with a `guix-discourse` mailing list and see how the integration holds up.
<pkill9>would MultiMC be accepted as a package given that it's a launcher that downloads proprietary software? (despite MultiMC itself being Apache licensed)
