The Go project uses the GitHub issue tracker for tracking bugs, not for asking questions or having general discussions.

Proposal #23745 was about considering using it with a "question" label, which we tried, but it wasn't a great experience for everyone involved (an issue tracker is designed primarily for tracking bugs, not asking questions or having discussions), and so we didn't proceed with it.

As @mvdan mentioned in #23745 (comment), GitHub is working on a new Discussions feature that is specifically for having discussions rather than tracking bugs. Once it becomes available for general use, we can consider using it for the Go project.

This is the tracking issue.

(Until something changes, please see https://golang.org/wiki/Questions for a list of places to ask questions and having discussions.)

Could we consider moving this forward? It looks like there are some iterations to the Generics draft and I think it would be beneficial to discuss with the community members who perhaps aren't subscribed to or scanning go-nuts (looks like there's ~10 people in that thread). It's been made clear that the longstanding Generics issue isn't the place, so I'm wondering what the thought is regarding turning on the Discussions beta.
