Moving to nobody until we have better picture of where we'll be going with support by IC.

we currently use slist. mailman is intended to replace that.
Mailman is software to help manage email discussion lists, much like Majordomo
and Smartmail. Unlike most similar products, Mailman gives each mailing list a
web page, and allows users to subscribe, unsubscribe, etc. over the web. Even
the list manager can administer his or her list entirely from the web. Mailman
also integrates most things people want to do with mailing lists, including
archiving, mail <-> news gateways, and so on.

a possible alternative to mailman is sympa. It has the advantage that
it supports ldap which we'll want in the future so we can easily do stuff
like 'send mail to everyone with cvs access'. Mailman's archiving and
mail/news gateway features are awful nice tho. 
Sympa is scalable and highly customizable mailing list manager. It can cope with
big lists (200,000 subscribers) and comes with a complete (user and admin) Web
interface. It is internationalized, and supports the us, fr, de, es, it, fi, and
chinese locales. A scripting language allows you to extend the behavior of
commands. Sympa can be linked to an LDAP directory or an RDBMS to create dynamic
mailing lists. Sympa provides S/MIME and HTTPS based authentication and encryption.
