The developers must prefer mailing lists.

It's not really a place to discuss the merits of mailing lists versus 
forums - but I must add that if you're using a decent mail client, you can 
probably configure it in a way whereby the messages appear like a forum... 
so in many ways mailing lists are the more customisable and flexible option.
