I guess I should let you know that (nearly) all the lists are gated
(and archived) at GMANE <URL:http://gmane.org/>.  I for one use it for
(nearly) all mailing lists I read and would consider it a great loss
(personally) if it should stop carrying the Debian lists.

What also should be mentioned is that it supports encrypting and
TMDA-protecting the e-mail adresses, see
<URL:http://gmane.org/tmda.php> for details.  Would it be an idea to
enable this for all Debian lists?  And retroactively encrypt the
archive, if that's possible.
