A mailing list works only if you have a small group of core developers who can independently organize the incoming mails using local tools, such as the read/unread marking of the email client. For a larger group this doesn't work (how do you assign a patch to someone using a mailing list?).
If you can filter patches by module (and it can be done automatically), then you won't need to assign patches. People can subscribe to interested parts and participate independently.
It sure is more convenient to do patch review, but that's why we are working on Rietveld integration in the tracker.
Where is the code? What is the status? Where is the roadmap, i.e. how can people help? Why can't you use hosted Rietveld instance if there are troubles to setup server properly?
