it's worth to forward this [1] to other GNOME mailing lists.

Just to reiterate and clarify, there is no "Mailman is unavailable"
situation.  Mailman has versions that support Python2 and Python3, and
Python2 is still supported in many places (but maybe not in Gnome land).
Gnome appears to be blaming python2 and Mailman, but it really seems
that Gnome just really wants to give up email support in favor of
support via web browser (with future ads, click tracking, data
harvesting, etc?).

I've offered to host, for Gnome, for free, everything they currently
have at mail.gnome.org (all they would have to do is switch DNS for the
subdomain mail.gnome.org to my systems and provide me with a copy of
their current Mailman2 lists and archives).  I've been doing Mailman2
mailinglists for 2 decades, and have tons of experience in this area. 
Sadly, no one from Gnome has contacted me to take me up on this offer.
