Moving it anywhere but sourceforge seems like a good plan. The other
obvious choice would be vger.kernel.org, but I'm happy with Debian.

To be aware of: I believe moving to Debian mailing lists means that
users need to abide by the Debian Code of Conduct
(https://www.debian.org/code_of_conduct). This is in my opinion
no bad thing, but people should be aware of this as it is (I believe,
correct me if I am wrong) a consequence of the move. Note the code
of conduct thing isn't a contributor agreement or whatever, it is
in essence a statement that you should be respectful to people on
the list and therefore should be unobjectionable.

Also note https://www.debian.org/MailingLists/#codeofconduct
