I think mailing list discussions are a lot better at building opinions
and consensus, while in-real-time meetings are useful mostly to make a
decision (based on previous conversations).

My feeling, based on the conversation we've had so far, is that
asynchronous communication works quite well: it's inclusive (based on
the quantity of people involved), cheap (as opposed to international
calls), accessible to non-English speakers (as opposed to phone call,
where mastering English is mandatory) and more friendly than a phone
call for those shy, not outspoken by nature or culture.
