Mailinglists for collaborative maintenance

The following thoughts were exchanged during the Alioth Sprint 2017.

Discussion summary

Possible manual migration of Alioth mailing lists to lists.d.o

Listmasters are willing to have some more lists on, but not all that are currently on alioth.

Lists may be granted on request based on the following requirements:

New lists will have common list settings - open list, free subscription, open archives.

Every list owner needs to request a list manually. There will be no automatic migration.

We prepared a minimal export script for retrieving the mailing list archive and the subscriber list from alioth. These can be imported by the listmasters.
