When I created a petition signature collection site, mailman worked fine
for my small list:
Others since on this list asked if Mailman can support large lists
(real mail lists, not petition signature lists as I unusually used
Mailman for), (with answers inc. "How long's a piece of string?",
aka "What's your back end SMTP capability?" etc).
I can't provide insight on Mailman loads, but see a custom big petition
list just crashed under load (no idea what software & hardware),
was crashing repeatedly this morning
my brother wrote me Thu, 21 Mar 2019 10:32:02 +0000
"it was going up by over 100,000 per hour earlier today"
43,676 signatures @ Wed, 20 Mar 2019 17:10:10 +0100
947,303 signatures @ Thu Mar 21 15:06:31 CET 2019
A load of about a million addresses with confirmation mails a day.
BTW The "Show on a map" links to another site
presumably that avoids extra load on signature site, nice functionality, but
beyond remit for us on mailman-users at .

Brexit now minority: 2.1 M now over 18, More Remainers; 1.5 M died, less
Leavers; 700 K votes Stolen from British Remainers in EU; + 3 M globaly
dis- franchised; + drift to Remain + avoid chaos. MPs should urge Queen:
Dismiss May, appoint new PM for unity government & 2nd Referendum. Revoke
Art. 50, plan better, refile Art.50 later? http://ExitBrexit.UK/#email_an_mp
