[LightDM] Moving mailing list from freedesktop.org infrastructure

Since LightDM has never hosted code on freedesktop.org we've been asked to
move our information from there [1]. This was just the Wiki content (now in
the README.md) and this mailing list.

So we need a new home :)

The easiest option I think is to move to using a Discourse forum, and the
Ubuntu one [2] is an easy candidate for that. I would probably prefer a
more neutral place as LightDM is not Ubuntu specific, but this is probably
overthinking it.

My experiences have shown that a modern forum works much better than a
traditional mailing list while supporting those who want to interact with
it via email. The content is more searchable for those with similar issues
to find.

What do people think?
