I commonly just act as list-maintainer for most mailing list that host
on my list server, only a few list that I have job as
list-administrator/list-moderators (technical mailing list).

Most mailing list are for small community (alumni of colleges, alumni of
senior high schools, alumni of junior high schools etc) which I don't
always follow, and the most list owner are lack of IT knowledge even too
old to learn the new technology but they (the list owner) are capable
enough to moderate the list, directing the discussion.
They trust me to run mailing list on my list server instead of at
yahoogroups or googlegroups because they know I will help them just in
case problems.

So I speak for them, who has a little knowledge of IT but willing to run
mailing list.
The need of notification for me it just make sure the real list-owner
already did the job after enough learning curve so I can leave it them
alone someday.
