[Mailman-Users] Mailman3 administration

I'm looking for some information on Mailman3 administration. I've found 
that it's not yet packaged by any of the common Linux distros - Debian, 
Ubuntu, Mint, RedHat, Centos, Fedora, Suse, Arch etc so I have some 
concerns about the amount of upkeep that running Mailman3 will entail.

I know that Mailman2 is available as a package on the above distros, but 
we would really like to take advantage of the kludge-free, virtual 
domains feature on Mailman3.

I've been asked by a local non-profit provider to assist them in moving 
their 200+ mailing lists from an outdated Sympa list server to 
Debian8/Postfix/Mailman. One of their chief concerns is the amount of 
extra administration, over and above normal list administration, that 
Mailman3 will require in the form of manual updates and maintenance.

We are in the evaluation and design stage right now, but could use any 
pertinent advice about supportive distros, available packages, the 
amount of extra administration involved or perhaps, in a worst case 
scenario, alternate list managers supporting a virtual domains feature 
similar to Mailman3.

Thanks for your help,
