FWIW, I don't find forums any more useable than mailling lists.  On
the other hand, wikis seem to end up with lots of the sort of thing
you're asking for, and are somewhat "self-organizing."  There is a
wiki for openmoko, at

which seems to have a lot of what you're looking for (a lot of the
discussion on the various mailling lists seems to end up getting
distilled into wiki articles).
