Speaking only for myself (as the admin team haven't had a chance
to discuss this issue yet) I can't see us shutting down
alioth-lists.debian.net any time soon. I do acknowledge that
we should be providing some sort of statement given that we said
the situation would be reviewed after a release cycle and I will
try and coordinate that soon.

Mailman 2 is supported in Debian (ie until the end of buster's
support) is pretty secure. We need to discuss whether we want to
migrate to mailman 3 (or something else) but I see no reason in
principle that the service shouldn't stay as long as it has a purpose.

As others have said I don't think there is any need to change email
addresses in maintainer fields at the this stage, so I don't think
this lintian warning is appropriate.
