    Enhance: optional notes field for mailing lists

    It might be useful to allow installations to provide an optional notes 
field for mailing lists.
    In particular, many of the ASF lists have changed names, so the complete 
history may be spread across several mailing lists. It would be useful to be 
able to document this somehow.
    There would certainly be space for an Info icon on the screen, but for list 
name changes it would be useful to have the text on the screen itself; if there 
is more info than would fit nicely on the screen the text could be a link to 
the full description.
    An alternative for the name changes would be to include backwards and 
forwards links (as relevant) in the Archive: menu. i.e. if the current list is 
a continuation of a previous list, then add a link to the previous incarnation 
at the end of the list. And vice versa.
    The notes field could also be used to document the purpose of the list, as 
this is not always clear from the name. For example, the dev@community ASF list 
often gets postings which would be better directed elsewhere.
