Reduce fragmentation: moving stuff to the forum and archiving repos

As community-topics repo is on the way to oblivion (the discussion and thanks everyone who’s closing issue there), i suggest doing more to reduce fragmentation. How about moving activities from the following repos and archiving them:

I know there are many inactive repos that we can archive but in this topic i would focus only on repos we use actively like the above. If anything else actively used by the community that we can move here comes to your mind please mention.
The algorithm will be roughtly:

  1. Move all the activities to the forum (if needed, create groups, invite people, add categories/tags)
  2. Make sure all the references on docs.ansible.com and on readthedocs poin to the forum
  3. Put a note in READMEs and open an issue in affected repos about moving the activities to the forum
  4. Archive the repo

I also don’t think we should vote on this one: just imo a verbal approval of some people using particular repos would be enough. If it’s silent here, we’ll interpret it as an agreement :wink:

Thoughts?

Let’s proceed with overview

I see the following actions we need to do in order to archive the repo

As there was no opposition to the proposal, I’ll start implementing it.
If I missed anything, please put a comment. If you wanna help, raise your hand:)

I’m not sure whether moving inclusion request discussions to the Forum will make it easier. GH discussions allow threads, which are more readable (if used correctly) than discussions here, at least for longer discussions.

(I fully agree with the overview repo though.)
