What's needed? We surely need ways to spread the word better and 
especially during the "emergencies" such as deploy a mailing list can be 
the way but surely it's not good for brainstorming or to gather feedback 
in a useful way (compare https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tech which is 
lately serving this purpose, to my surprise I have to say, thanks to the 
effort of some users).
