We've been using GitHub issues to manage discussions for the last eighteen months or so. It's working pretty well: when something on the main mailing list looks like it's going to run for a while, we push the conversation over to GitHub so that people who want to go into more detail can do so without flooding other people's mailboxes.
I've being going through those discussion issues while tidying up our lessons for their next release, and found a few that are still relevant, but which never reached a resolution. If you have thoughts on any of these, please go ahead add your comments—if your ideas don't get folded into the lessons this time, they will next.
