While I'm not a very active Wine developer, but participate in other
projects as well, I myself also prefer mailing lists. I can read them
offline anywhere I want without needing an online connection. It allows
you to do research on the question and prepare an answer offline as
well. Forums are more interactive but that is in this respect also
their biggest drawback. I did newsgroups in the past for a forum that
had a news link but some changes to that gateway made the newsgroup
less and less usable.
