[Tagging] Which global OSM mailing list for the "community index"?

We should probably list the OSM Forum as well then. OSM Help also uses
your OSM credentials. OSM IRC channels do not need credentials - a
random alias is sufficient.

The OSMF link seems to be more about donations than giving a hand.

I'd funnel using these two categories:

* OSM Help
* OSM Forum
* OSM Talk mailing list
* OSM IRC channel

* Reddit
* Facebook
* Telegram
* Discord
* Twitter
* OSMF website

Although, I wonder why nobody has created a gateway to merge all
discussions to a single platform (or at most two platforms).
