We already have a forum:
But almost nobody uses it, the mailing list is much more popular...

The most important is that what results from any discussions be written in a wiki page so that the said increasing number of mappers knew how to map instead of spending hours trying to find instructions that have been written in mail or not.
It's a bad experience to spend many hours searching non existing instructions, to do the same as what is already done and to be scolded because what was already done it's not the right way.
It's straightforward to copy&paste the conclusions of a HTML e-mail discussion to a HTML Web page, but, alas, it's a bit more complicated and long with the Wiki formats, especially those that don't even have a button to insert a <newline>.
