After experimenting with Discourse I find it much more convenient to write announcements and posts in Discourse than in jenkins.io. Documentation-as-code is great, but Discourse offers a good way to write announcements with WYSIWYG style, with Markdown and previews. As a contributor, I spend much less time to write an announcement or a blog, and hence I can create more valuable content within the same timeframe.
jenkins.io blog is still valuable for users as a blog, but I wonder whether we should introduce a bridge which would allow to write blogs/announcements on Discourse and then easily repost them on the Jenkins blog. We could automate creation of blogs, e.g. by exporting Markdown/Asciidoc, images, and then autogenerating metadata. @halkeye @zbynek @timja have done it for Jenkins Wiki, and there is no reason why we could not make it for Discourse, with automatic pull request creation. Another option would be to just embed Discourse blog into Jenkins.io, e.g. by generating special blog entries at the build time or at the runtime.
There could be multiple options for that. I suggest a quick poll to kick start the discussion:
