Assuming you are talking about systems for discussion, rather than
filing bugs: Debian has <http://forums.debian.net/> and has had for a
long time, but it gets relatively little use.

Personally I'd love to see the list archive software get an overhaul,
and mailman3's "HyperKitty" archiver looks very promising to me, but I'm
not sure whether it has delivered on the promise, which was to offer a
very forum-like interface to mailing lists, permitting people to reply
via web, or click "+1" buttons (thus freeing the mail interface of lots
of "+1" mails, a blight that debian-user fortunately doesn't suffer)

I've set up mailman3 servers and messed with the code quite a bit. It's a huge step up from mailman v2, and not just cause the web interface is a whole lot slicker.
