There’re many people having used mailing list for communication for
years. Mail can be simple but flexible, so it suits well for different
workflows efficiently.

Some language communities (Swift, Rust, Scala, etc.) are moving to
online forums. It helps when someone is looking for old discussion.
It’s interesting that the communities are all using Discourse, which
has a mailing-list mode. Maybe it’s a good choice since ideal forum
should be able to inter-op with mails (like Phabricator).

For now, Nabble ( http://llvm.1065342.n5.nabble.com/ ) still works for
mail archive, you can have a look at it.
