AFAICT, most of the "mailman community" reads this mailman list. It's not
hard to find or use. Also, decending to personal attacks does not further

I think that Jason is doing the blowing up here. The list owners/maintainers
have clearly said that they don't want to play with gmane. Done. If gmane
had added some of my lists w/o asking, I'd have some impolite things to say
about that, too. Just because mailman is an opensource project doesn't mean
that the maintainers -owe- the rest of the world anything. (And, if you
want to keep up with announcements, subscribe to the mailman-announce list.)
Please let it rest.
