I've derived a simple brown theme from "modern" that looks more like list.org, but with a couple of intentional deviations (maximum line widths, and no underlining of links unless you hover).
Thank you Jim. I think it's good. I've installed it on wiki.list.org, so anyone can select it (the 'mailman' theme) in their preferences. If others like it, we can make it the default theme.
It's very nice. Thanks, Jim, for putting this together! I particularly like it that you've put links to various useful pages in the sidebar.
If I were to suggest anything to change - not that my opinion is that important in the context of Mailman development, however - I might suggest not limiting the width of the header and page content, but instead just letting it fill the window. (I have a bit of a personal preference about this kind of thing, though.) For consistency with www.list.org, I guess that the fonts could be adjusted, too, although they actually seem nicer with this style, so maybe you could persuade someone to adjust the other site instead. :-)
Generally, Moin doesn't throw up too many surprises when styling - various special system pages usually keep working, albeit with a traditional look within any wildly restyled site - but it's always worth checking pages like RecentChanges and FindPage to see if you want to propagate things like colour changes to every corner of the site.
I'll take a look at the theme and see if there's anything else I can suggest, but it's certainly nicely done.
