When I read that LWN article some time ago, it struck me that the Python
and Fedora communities are very different from ours in that they were
still doing most of their development discussions on mailing lists,
whereas we've migrated nearly all of the ones we don't have in chats
anyway to Phabricator. That means the need for Discourse isn't quite the
same, and it also does mean to me that Phabricator and Discourse might
end up stepping on each others' toes and cause more fragementation. I
prefer a single thing over two things, I guess.

On the users forums replacement angle I can't really comment.
