I think you're speculating. Please state clearly what parts should be
patched (it's GPL software!).

Well, the good thing with Discourse is that you can use it by email
when it's properly setup to do so.


I am very much interested in the topic of using Discourse to promote
the agenda of free technologies and a public digital infrastructure,
which I already proposed informally to the FSFE at various
occasions. I already proposed to host it myself and offered to use it
as an experimental tool in support of the Public Money Public Code
