We were told that only a Google group was possible but since we could get that from the web itself and since Google can change its policies, the consensus was to go for a mailman list on Wikimedia server due to its permanency.
However, if mailman program can be put in place on the Wikimedia.in server and space promised permanently for the archives, that would be great. As of now the Wikimedia people noted that a lot of list requests come from India. In future they may be chary to give more lists especially to our smaller communities and language groups, especially at the rate we are growing.
