Along these lines, has anybody actually used Discourse?  I've heard it
talked about as a mailing list / Google Groups replacement, and it is
supposedly FOSS:

My understanding is that you can use it like a mailing list, or a
forum, with most of the advantages of each.  However, I've never
actually used it, so I don't know if it has any downsides.  It sounds
like they also sell a hosted version of it, and I wouldn't be
surprised if they're willing to do something for FOSS communities but
I have not made any inquires/etc.
