I think almost nothing is missing from Mailman core. We don't have
'sibling lists' or 'topics', but other than that, I think it's all there.

Quite a few core settings are not exposed in Postorius but we're
chipping away at that.

I know that you (Jim P) have contributed a lot to MM 2 and we all and I
in particular appreciate that, but I was thinking specifically of MM 3.

Note also that I still spend a lot of time helping people with MM 2
questions. This is time that could otherwise be spent on MM 3. This is a
big part of why I've said 2.1.30 will be the last MM 2 release.
