So your expectation is alioth-lists.d.n will become a long term service.

However I read  the announcement[1] 2 years ago differently.

[1] https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2018/01/msg00003.html

Also it writes,

usefulness after one release cycle

We have released buster since then. And we are close to bullseye now.

Probably it's time to start thinking about this.
