I do think that we should consider to move to discourse.
One thing that I've learned with the agile method is to discover the 'pain'
of my user and try to cure it.
What i see from this thread is the 'pain' of maintaining this kind of
infrastructure, that I think that using
tools of automations like Ansible or Kubernetes for the orquestration and
management of containers would
aliviate that kind of pain.
But I could be wrong, since I don't know any idea of the work that the kde
sysadmins have.
I love automation and how that makes my life easier at work.
I agree over Paul Adams comments, and I think that if we want to go forward
on this, we need to study it,
find the poins of 'pain' and come up with solutions that can be good for
everyone.

For me, all the movements that want to bring KDE to a modern web are
valid... to be studied and maybe implemented.
