End goal is having full archives there (bug 57246), but that can be done later.

1) Take the list of all publicly archived mailing lists:
2) List all those which are not yet in or and
add the list here as comment (this can be helped by bug 58957 but can be done
independently from that).
3) Subscribe each of them at , filling the
fields in this way (don't touch the others):
a) Mailing list email address: <name>, e.g.
advocacy_advisors/    2013-Dec-03 03:27:08    -      Directory ->,
b) Description: the description on [[m:Mailing lists/Overview]] if present, or
whatever<name> says, or nothing.
c) Mailing list software: mailman
d) [IMPORTANT!] Group name: follow existing patterns, so<LanguageNameInEnglishAllLowercase> for
Wikipedia mailing lists, or<MailingListName> (without any
-l) for all the rest unless a more specific parent exists, in particular
"india" for Indian groups, "usa" for USA groups and "mediawiki" for all
MediaWiki-related lists [1] [2] [3]
e) [Optional] Language: the list's language if not English; Localisation: yes
f) Your email address: my email address, federicoleva@ (bugzilla tells you it);
g) Comments: "We hope to be able to provide mbox archives too for completeness
at a later stage but we'll appreciate the inclusion of the lists just for posts
from now on too".

I also propose this as GCI task, I'll review the job done based on the
confirmation emails I receive. Very easy with above instructions, just a bit
tedious (last time I added about a hundred lists it took a couple hours I
