No, they don't. Note that Gmail isn't a real mail client.

Because forums suck. Digests don't work. You can't batch-download
updates. You have to login to interact. Email is simply easier for ...
just about everything. I can use my smart phone for this mailing list
without any special software, and it's okay if my browser's javascript
engine sucks because I'm not using it. If you like nntp better, you
can use a mail-to-news gateway.

In general, the ASF supports mailing lists for communication and not
forums for the above and many other reasons.

(Honestly, if we were to move to a "forum" format, I'd lobby for using
something more like Stack Exchange since it's a great platform and
rewards members of the community for submitting useful answers.)
