My initial thinking is that we are going to decommission mail-*.apache.org, so any solution basically means: backfill on lists.a.o. That is going to require some coordination with our vendor. I'm tending towards "yes", but the path isn't clear yet.

It is important that we preserve the early years (pre-Apache) of our

Is there a path forward?
