I actually prefer forums because there's less of a barrier to get
started. I can continue working through my browser, and I don't have to
setup a message filter.
Even if there's not a forum where developers participate, but just a
forum on winehq for users to help each other, I think that would be much
better than no forum. More users have experience with forums than
mailing lists, so it's much more likely they'll sign up.
