Markus, i'm the one to talk to.  I'll create the mail list and add the
addresses you mention as list managers, you'll be seeing a "welcome to
your new list" message about it shortly.

An archive comes with the maillist.  Currently the archives are public
or disabled - perhaps public is ok in this case.  In any case, the next
item on our agenda for mailman/pipermail is provision for private
archives, which we hope to have going, as time allows, in the next week
or two.

I do not know - i have not played with a news to mail gateway, and i do
not handle the news provisions here, so it might be better to base the
gateway elsewhere.

I'm glad to see comp.lang.python.announce launching!  Contact me
directly so we can iron out any details...
