Discourse instance

Gtk+ - Dev - General mailing list
Hi all;

after the discussion[1] last month, and the feedback received (both on list and off), we decided to trial a Discourse instance on the GNOME infrastructure.

The Platform/Core sub-category is meant to be used for all discussions about GTK, GLib, GdkPixbuf, Pango, and other core libraries of the GNOME stack.

Email is still allowed for both posting and replying, though I strongly encourage people to give the web UI a try; it's really nice.

Feedback is very much appreciated.

Ciao,
 Emmanuele.

Note: for those who prefer email, we've written down a handy guide on how to use email with Discourse:

Additionally, if you're a Foundation member, you can log in with LDAP
so you don't need to remember yet another password.
After doing so, let me know by sending me (nmcgovern) a message on
Discourse, and I'll add you to the group which gives you a little flair
and a 'GNOME Team' title by your posts.

Finally, when logging in, you'll get a message from discobot. This
friendly bot will guide you through the basic functionality. You can
skip it if you want, but you'll miss out on getting a badge (
https://discourse.gnome.org/badges)

Thanks,
Neil

Well, what i mean is that i'd like to be able to be notified of topics that are
relevant to me, and one way to do that is to allow topics to be tagged and
allow people to subscribe to tags. Kind of like issues on gitlab are tagged,
which allows me to be notified only of Windows-related issues. Unless the
amount of new topics will be modest (kind of like gtk-devel-list right now), in
which case i'd probably manage by just sorting out the new topics manually (i'm
definitely going to use the email notification thing).

Also, related: if i watch a topic, do i get email notifications for each
message? If not, i'd have to enable the ML mode. Also, email notifications are
issued once per topic, right? So, if the topic subject changes (like how an
email thread can split by changing the topic), i won't be notified?

I haven’t gone through the tutorial with discobot, but seems that 2FA
is not going to work with LDAP logins, right?

Ah, yes. You can do that!

https://discourse.gnome.org/tags/
Click on a tag, and you can update your watching status. The number of
tags are limited at the moment, so if you have any ideas for other tags
you want to add, let me know and I'll add them.

Yes. Watching mode notifies you every time there's a new post in a
topic or category you're watching.

> issued once per topic, right? So, if the topic subject changes (like

The way it works in Discourse is slightly different. Instead of
splitting a thread by changing the subject, you split the actual topic
in two to form a new one. Once that split happens, you should get
notified that there's a new topic. That split is done by a moderator
rather than a user, as the user can just make a new post.

Yes... in a way. Turning on 2FA requires a password and with LDAP
logins, Discourse has a null password for your account.

You can generate a password for your account by using the forgotten
password link. This will then enable you to turn on 2FA. Note: this
means that you won't be able to log in with LDAP (or in fact, Google or
Github)

I guess it comes down to your desire for security vs ease of use. LDAP
is easier, but can't do 2FA. Local Discourse accounts can do 2FA, but
that's another password to remember.

I'm also aware of the irony of replying here, rather than on the
discourse instance so others can see and learn. We have a site feedback
category :)

I've got 2FA set up, but was only asked for my password.

Well, I suspect LRN would probably appreciate a ‘windows’ tag.

I've added a topic in Site Suggestions for these to collate them :)
