Another option: if you are more comfortable with managing information 
flow via usenet newsgroups than via email lists, gmane.org provides 
mail-to-nntp gateways and archiving of most of the major python mailing 
lists, including this one, the bugs list, and code checkins.   It also 
supports posting via your news reader, rss feeds, searching, and several 
web interfaces.
