I run a list that has about twice that many subscribers, and I can bet
that some of the python.org or other big lists are much bigger than
that. It too is an "annouce only" type of thing. No problems
whatsoever. This is especially true after I switched from sendmail to
postfix as the MTA. I would look at your MTA and/or system resources
(memory, etc.) and see if you can tweak that a bit. Mailman should
have no problem w/ this size of list (at least in my experience).
