Some of the sub-projects have moved from the sourceforge mailing lists 
to Google Groups (which can also be used as a mailing list). However we 
(as project admins) have - at the moment - no plans to move 
firebird-support away from Yahoo Groups.

Also, what looks to be temporary hick ups in a service that has worked 
relatively well for the past 18 years (since November 2000) is not a 
good enough reason to move a mailing list with 7500+ subscribers, 
especially given the fact that 1) because of the GDPR we can't simply 
resubscribe everyone on a new list, 2) we'd lose the archive, and 3) 
it'd cause a lot of confusion + other issues.

If the service continues to be degraded, we'll start a discussion if and 
how to address that.
