Yes, which is unfortunate. The other side however is that Mailman
(in this case) has an active population of experience list admins
using it who are willing to talk about list admin issues. Its not a
frequent thing, but it pops up enough to be more than useful.
Arguably it would be better were there a central/shared venue for
this, but I've yet to find one that was not minimally a catastrophic
victim of its own success (moderating a list is hard work, building
and running a list for list moderators, who know all the games and
rules, doubly so)...

I wish you luck in your search.
