My 2 cents. What happens. Whenever there is actually an email that gets
recieved people like me do read them. As it gives concise information. But
when it comes to forums. Many a times the notifications dont get sent. It
also doesn't create the necessary invite for the busy people to get
involved in the discussions.

I'm still hesitant about the point of the "safe zone" that is this
mailing list, compared to a forum.
On the other hand I fear that an introduction sent to this mailing list
is like a flyer attached behind the door instead of on the notice
board. I mean, many community members will never read it.
Another point never solved is the involvement of other community/team
members in the join/onboarding process that are not hanghing in this
mailing list, or other Join SIG communication channels. The Join SIG
maybe need help from other teams members. We are doing our best, and
well, but more expertise in some specific facets of the project could
Maybe an introduction sent to discussion.f.o. has better visibility.
All in all the mission of the Join workflow is:
"Not the tasks, not the processes, the people. [...] So, we had a
thought. Why not help Jen become part of the community - get to know
the people - first? [...] Fedora is about hanging out with friends".
Well, what a better place than a forum?
About the other purposes of this mailing list, well, Join SIG specific
tasks and discussions are held on pagure tickets or on some chat.
And announcements for newcomers, easy tasks, well, again,
discussion.f.o. could be a better channel.
So... I'm inclined to foster your proposal.
