The web forum and the mailing list would need to be interconnected like 
it is possible with the Mailman3 software that Lukas and Nikolaus have 
mentioned.

Voice conversation is a great opportunit even if we do not push the 
hard fact topics further. We could restrict the topics that can be 
discussed on the phone or even better: post the minutes (protocol) to 
the list.
