I agree with Ihor's response for this point.

I disagree with this one, I find mailing lists much more well-formatted,
readable and conversation/discussion friendly than PRs on GitHub (it
mostly has to do it the web UI, TBH [1]).

But it isn't this particular case. I only emailed asking if he would
have interest on merging his work on Org-mode core, which isn't really a
feature or a modification on the codebase. Nonetheless, one of the first
things I said was that I could open an issue on the public repo if he'd
rather have it documented there as well. I just felt more inclined to
send him an e-mail because 1. he made it public, and 2. I feel more
comfortable using e-mails for communicating such things.
