No difference in use (besides the fact, that use need to put new "fuel" into 
the steam engine more often.

Basically web forums are bad copies of newsgroups, mostly lacking the 
flexibility and filter options. Most web forums are hard to read, if you 
want to read most of the posts.
On the other hand, web forums allow for more formatting of the text which 
satisfies the kids more (more eye candy). Web forums just need a browser, 
while newsgroups need a special software.

Mailing lists are completely useless for discussions, because a higher 
amount of users results in big mail floods.

Issue trackers are an organized way of writing todo lists with some special 
options like fields for typical data (version, severity, etc) and cross-
I do not think that there is a web 2.0 alternative besides the fact that 
most issue trackers are already web based.

So I am not sure what your problems are. Both tools can be found easily 
within the TYPO3 project pages and the to-be-launched web forum newsgroup 
connection will make it even easier to participate.

The central communication points are (and most likely will be) the 
newsgroups and the issue trackers.
Wiki, Notes, T3o etc. are just supplementary and are linked from one of the 
main medias.
It depends of the nature of your data that you want to share, which medium 
is the right place to put it in.

If you want it to be noticed, share a link in the newsgroup.

Isn't it simple.
