Hi all,

from a discussion I started here:


this is the comment:

"Now I've got you - The biggest issue I have with texmacs is how difficult it 
is to interact with the community.
Your mailing list archive is not indexed by google (except for the narkive 
version, where search is broken) so answered questions are generally not 
visible to new users.
The default search in the list archive only searches a single month, this is 
useless. Searching multiple months is non-obvious.
Some project-deaf suggestions from this outsider are:
- put your lists on Google Groups so they are easily searchable and findable 
for new users
- just put the damn thing on GitHub and use their Issues system (or GitLab or 
at least something that isn't Savannah).
It might be a bit annoying for current project members to get the hang of it 
but I think, in 2020, it is very difficult to grow and show off a community 
that's based on GNU Savannah!"

I somehow agree that our mailing list is not easily searchable (actually I 
never use the arxiv). As for the rest with Darcy we maintain the git mirror in 
github, so I will point he there.

I think would be useful (if we already do not have them) to have these 
community resources linked in our main webpage.
