For comparison's sake, the LibreOffice mailists[1] all operate this way, 
the mailists are bridged to GMane, forums (Nabble Gateway) this offers 
great flexibility with our different teams. IRC is available as well. I 
have to say that by covering all communication bases this way, the 
LibreOffice teams have been able to make great headway in the very few 
months of its existence. I am very impressed at how few complaints there 
have been of the communication process just by having covered all of 
these forms right from the very start.

Taking a look at this setup may be of interest.
