A mailing list is a computer file in a mail server, or (alternatively) an
email address that delivers mail to multiple human recipients.  It cannot
fix bugs, it cannot maintain software, it cannot debate technical points.

I suggest you replace "a mailing list" with "a group of people reachable
from a common email address, such as a mailing list".

Yes, this is nitpicking.  Policy is a spec, and it needs to be treated
as such.
