This is about the "discussion tooling" part of your reply, and therefore
not really related to Subversion. I'm assuming Subversion uses
scarab.tigris.org and therefore posting to their user mailing list too.
I happen to use trac.edgewall.org (a popular competitor of Scarab) for
our projects. For each issue Trac has a Description text field that can
be edited only by the project engineers to summarize the discussion that
takes place in the comments. Comments can be added by anybody that has
access to the project. AFAICS adding the same feature to scarab would
give the best of both worlds (mailing list and issue tracker) in one
place. For one thing, I, as a user, would love to have a one-stop-shop
with the whole thing (discussion+conclusions+current state of affairs
for the issue). And my (wild) guess is that this enhancement would be
nearly trivial to add to scarab.
