  Subject: Is a mailing list the best option ?

  This is the first open source project that I have joined, but is there a
better mechanism compared to a mailing list? Just got back, and check my
mail box to find over 200 e-mails. End up having to read replies, and not
knowing what the actual questions were.

    Would it be better to have a forum like environment, whereby people can
track the topics being discussed, and contribute to the ones that are
closest to their hearts? At the very least we can view the questions, and
the replies.

    Also, maybe I need to catch up on my reading, but I seem to notice
coding going on, and people starting to patch the system up. Is there any
design documentation out? Use cases, sequence diagrams ? all that object
oriented design stuff? Would help alot for people to get a holistic view of
what is going on in the system
