As Marc already noted this special request should simply be ignored
now, we have alioth now and currently there isn't much traffic on

lists.debian.org has its merits: Very official, easy to find,
webarchives, gating to newsgroups via linux.debian.*, _working_
Anti-Spam measures. I really do not know how alioth's lists compare,
because I have not subscribed to one yet.

It would be nice if there were documented mechanisms to move a list
/painlessly/ from alioth to lists and vice versa, i.e. keeping the
subscriber list and redirections for the old list addresses.
