With Mailman, all one needs is an email address that works: no need to
create a google-account or whatever they're called this week.

If in the UK/EU (and your machines in in the UK/EU) one doesn't have to
worry oneself with data-transfers out of the UK/EU, too.

In trouble-shooting, in theory, one has access to Mailman & MTA logs.

(and, my own experience, config'ing a Mailman list is *so* much easier
(and obvious). Particulary when trying to get a code-repo commit
