The move to github may solve one problem but seems to cause others.

Replies to the mail from github don't seem to go to github. Is there an easy way to forward replies to github?

Also, github doesn’t maintain the threading as email does. In serializing the responses, it isn’t clear (as far as I can tell) which comment a reply refers to.

It isn’t clear to me either how much of the original mail I should cut and paste into a reply, and as the formatting is changed, it loses some of the indications of who said what.

I am sure it is my lack of familiarity with using github lists. What are the guidelines or etiquette for this?

And if I have to go to the github web site to make a reply that is a needless hassle obviating the benefits have a mail client.

This thread includes participants on two lists, but recently a subthread developed on just one of those lists. To avoid this happening again, and to take advantage of other potential benefits, several people have suggested moving the thread to a github issue.

I have now done that. See

 From this point on, *please do not continue the thread by email. Use the gtihub issue instead.*

The second comment in the issue contains a link to a page that contains all previous emails (including the divergent subthread) in flattened form, which should make it easy to reconstruct the thread from the beginning, and for those who missed the subthread to catch up on those comments.
