I think wiki's are a great place to collect information. However,
personally I don't find them that useful for discussions. I think it
would work best if we discussed the issues on the mailing list and used
the wiki to store the results of our discussions.

Another issue is where we deal with individual design decisions. We've
recently had two different bug reports about the position of the "Hang
Up" button in the dialer application (bugs 730 and 942). I would
probably suggest highlighting a particular bug on the mailing list and
then allowing people to discuss on the bug report itself.
