That would be good, updating the website for such things would also
Plus the webfrontend for the mailinglist is to out date, a more modern
frontend such as mailman3 would help.

You have can have separate branches that don't share the same root
However using Git for such use cases sounds like a nightmare for several
1. User friendly ness especially for beginners.
2. Conflicts
3. The need for a predefined format, layout.
4. Lack of links between  bugs for things such as dependencies.

While Debuggs isn't that good for anyone that doesn't use Email it is
the closest one that I would think of as useful and easiest to setup.
