Two steps:

Having statement of what people's views are would be a good start.

Then draw out a framework and identify the key points of difference.

A wiki page is better for the statements of experience and viewpoints 
than email messages because it is input to a discussion, not a 
discussion of the view.  It (a wiki page) is longer lasting as well.
