scala-user shutting down soon

Heather Miller
Hi all,

Following the success of Discourse as a replacement for all other
Scala mailing lists (scala-internals, scala-language, scala-sips,
scala-debate), we have decided to follow suit in migrating scala-user
to a shiny new Discourse forum focused only on user questions and
answers at https://users.scala-lang.org

To facilitate this move, we have removed signups to scala-user, and in
coming weeks we will shift scala-user to read-only.
All conversations will remain archived on Google Groups. The intended
replacement for these lists is the https://users.scala-lang.org
Discourse forum/mailing list. So please head over there and sign up if
you're interested in participating in discussions that previously
belonged on scala-user.

In general Discourse is a significant improvement for discussing code
via email. Discourse is set up to be used in mailing list mode. That
is, you  receive discussions to your inbox, and can reply to them via
email.  It's also a forum that gives all kinds of statistics,
upvoting, and polls. You can do syntax highlighting etc, and posts can
be written in Markdown.

As of now, these are the recommended channels for discussing Scala:

Mailing list/forum:
* Scala Users: https://users.scala-lang.org - a central place for
  lasting, threaded discussions related to; learning about Scala from
  fellow Scala users. This is a good place for coding help, beginner questions,
  etc.
* Scala Contributors: https://contributors.scala-lang.org/ - a central place for
  lasting, threaded discussions related to; development work on the
  Scala compiler, Scala Improvement Proposal discussions (proposals for changes
  to the language or compiler), Scala Platform discussions, or
  debates/discussions typically found on scala-debate or scala-language. There
  are tags for each of these topics in Discourse, so it's possible to subscribe
  to only a subset of these topics.

Real-time discussion:
* https://gitter.im/scala/scala - a relaxed chat room about all things Scala.
  Library questions, language questions, etc.
* https://gitter.im/scala/center - a discussion channel about Scala community
  governance, processes, the Scala Platform, online courses, and general updates
  about projects and things going on at the Scala Center.
* https://gitter.im/scala/contributors - a place to Scala internals and open
  source work with contributors.
* https://gitter.im/scala/moocs- a place to talk about all Scala MOOCs

Please don't use gitter for community-wide discussions that are meant
to be persisted. Gitter is best for ephemeral discussions, quick
questions, chats, sanity checks, etc. If you want to promote a topic
for community-wide discussion that was hatched in a Gitter chat,
please do so in Scala Contributors. While Gitter is indexed by Google,
finding points made in Gitter tends to be difficult amongst all of the
other chats/jokes/etc that tend to take place there. Thus, questions
or arguments posts meant to be persisted belong on Scala Users or
Scala Contributors.

Cheers,
Heather

Roland Kuhn
Even though this was foreseeable, I am still saddened by this move. It will likely mean that won’t keep up to date with Scala in the same way that was conveniently possible before. Requiring users to open yet another browser tab and poll that regularly is a big step backwards from a mailing list. Before someone suggests email notifications please consider that these are significantly less useful than just properly threaded email discussions because upon receiving a notification I now have to switch programs and contexts in order to see the full discussion.

In any case, just my two cents. There probably has been a discussion about this elsewhere that I did not notice.

Regards,

Roland

Try it, it's fine! Lots of us have been using contributors.scala-lang.org in this manner for some time now.

No, of course I tried it, I think you noticed when I signed up for the contributors forum, and on my MUA the notifications (that do contain the text) do not thread properly. What I see is one thread per topic per participant, which is not very helpful. Cursory inspection of the mail headers revealed missing In-Reply-To and References headers in some but not all cases.

Hi Roland,

Discourse is in mailing list mode. That means behaves as a mailing list. So, the way you use it is the same as scala-user plus you get syntax highlighting, markdown syntax, etc. (You don't have to open another browser tab or visit the Discourse page at all if you don't want to.) I use contributors.scala-lang.org almost exclusively from my email client.

So it shouldn't be that much of a tragedy... 

Cheers,
Heather

same here, never had any problem with this. I'm using Gmail.

Roland, what email client are you using? Perhaps there's something about this at https://meta.discourse.org, which is where people talk about problems with Discourse itself.

Take as an example the modularization thread:

Seth @ 5:23 references message [hidden email], which is …
nafg @ 4:26, but that does not reference a message but “the thread”, which apparently macOS Mail does not understand (and I’m not surprised, because there is no message with ID [hidden email] to link to)

And no, switching to Gmail is not an option.

Hi Roland,

I don't think anyone suggested that you switch to Gmail. I think Seth was just pointing out what email service he is using and reporting no issues threading with it. I too use Gmail and have no issues with threading.

What email client do you use? Maybe there's a known bug we can do something about in our Discourse installation to fix this?

Cheers, 
Heather

     Hello,

  Sad, sad, sad.

  I signed up to Scala contributors on Discourse and I only get summary notifications. Would be nice if it worked like a mailing list, but currently it doesn't for me. Possibly I could set it up, but first I'd have to learn more about Discourse, a service I'm not using for anything else. and I haven't heard of before.

  This makes Scala less accessible for most people. I don't see any benefit that Discourse could possibly have that would compensate for that loss.

      Best, Oliver

Hi Heather,

I didn’t mean to accuse you of anything, the sentence about Gmail was triggered by the evidence so far pointing in the direction that it does indeed work with Gmail. Trouble with other clients was probably not discovered because a) Gmail is prevalent and b) I had intended to raise the issue over the weekend but you were a bit quicker with the announcement.

Yes, it would be nice if this was something that can be fixed in Discourse. Given that we would essentially switch from a working mailing-list to a currently-somewhat-broken-but-then-fixed mailing-list, may I ask what is the reason for this upheaval?

Regards,

Roland

Thanks for supplying details. I'll work on turning this into a proper bug report.

A quick search of https://meta.discourse.org shows that other problems in this area were fixed once they were reported (e.g. https://meta.discourse.org/t/emails-not-threaded/44444/12).

     Hello,

  Thanks! Would it make sense to have that set by default?

  But it still is very nice about Google Groups that I can use my Google account. That Discourse requires yet another account is a hassle.

  Do I get that right that you have your own installation of Discourse? Who owns that? Aren't you afraid that some one might hack it and steal people's credentials?

Do you have a GitHub account? On our Discourse, you can just use that.

In reply to this post by Oliver Ruebenacker
Hi Olivier,

As of like 30-40 minutes ago, users.scala-lang.org is set to mailing list mode by default. 

When we started contributors.scala-lang.org, mailing list mode wasn't set by default (I didn't realize it wasn't default) – a day or two after we created it and opened it up, I made mailing list mode default once it became evident that it wasn't default. 

So the fact that contributors.scala-lang.org wasn't by default in mailing list mode for you must've been because you signed up before I was able to make mailing list mode default. 

If you sign up for users.scala-lang.org now, it should be set to mailing list mode by default. So, no action should be necessary :-)

About Google accounts – I can enable Google logins. Right now we allow only GitHub logins or sign ups via email. But if people would prefer, I can add Google logins so people can use their Google accounts with Discourse. Just say the word.

Cheers,
Heather

Hi Olivier,

As of like 30-40 minutes ago, users.scala-lang.org is set to mailing list mode by default. 

When we started contributors.scala-lang.org, mailing list mode wasn't set by default (I didn't realize it wasn't default) – a day or two after we created it and opened it up, I made mailing list mode default once it became evident that it wasn't default. 

So the fact that contributors.scala-lang.org wasn't by default in mailing list mode for you must've been because you signed up before I was able to make mailing list mode default. 

If you sign up for users.scala-lang.org now, it should be set to mailing list mode by default. So, no action should be necessary :-)

About Google accounts – I can enable Google logins. Right now we allow only GitHub logins or sign ups via email. But if people would prefer, I can add Google logins so people can use their Google accounts with Discourse. Just say the word.

Cheers,
Heather

     Hello,

  Thanks! Would it make sense to have that set by default?

  But it still is very nice about Google Groups that I can use my Google account. That Discourse requires yet another account is a hassle.

  Do I get that right that you have your own installation of Discourse? Who owns that? Aren't you afraid that some one might hack it and steal people's credentials?

     Best, Oliver

Visit https://contributors.scala-lang.org/users/sethtisue/preferences (substitute your own username for "sethtisue"), check the "Enable mailing list mode" checkbox, done.

Re: scala-user shutting down soon

Hugo Ferreira
Seems like the Google button is broken. I get:

400. That’s an error.

Error: redirect_uri_mismatch

The redirect URI in the request, http://users.scala-lang.org/auth/google_oauth2/callback, does not match the ones authorized for the OAuth client. Visit https://console.developers.google.com/apis/credentials/oauthclient/524049836445-hgob0psker7e6cp6k8rv4v559jnkur5t.apps.googleusercontent.com?project=524049836445 to update the authorized redirect URIs.
