In practice a lot gets done on IRC; the latency is so much lower that
it's worthwhile. A good deal has been done face-to-face at conferences,

In the early days, before we went public, development took place on the
main Canonical internal mailing list (which now sees very few mails, and
none about Ubuntu development), but the level of mailing list traffic
was a good deal lower then than it is now. You can get a lot done if you
give people tasks they're interested in and the freedom to get on with
them largely unobstructed.
