Who's on this list?

I'd like to move this to hosting on bogomips.org.  I can configure mlmmj
to not require subscription as well as use public-inbox[1] so the
archives are downloadable via git.

I originally liked librelist because of rsyncable archives;
but that doesn't seem to be coming back.  public-inbox means
archives are stored in git (via ssoma[2])

In addition to the mail address change, this means posters must Cc:
everyone, since we no longer count on people being subscribed.
The big upside is drive-by emails become more common

Spam hasn't been a problem on the unicorn mailing list, either,
as public-inbox uses SpamAssassin very effectively.

I will never encourage or rely on proprietary communications platforms
or protocols.  Plain-text email is the lowest common denominator and the
preferred platform of git.git developers.
