What's the fundamental problem here?
You're using mailman, which is in use on thousands of machines. It should
be possible to copy it to one of them or set up a new one in no time.
Maybe the likes of github or sourceforge are an option, if they run a
mailing list service, but if and when such places go bang they tend to be
impossible to get stuff out of. Hopefully that won't happen because a lot
of people will be hurting...
I don't know how many subscribers there are, but it's not a busy list.
Maybe being hosted by one of the many projects that use the GC is a good
I'm sure that, for example, the Dylan Hackers would be happy to. We already
run our own lists, have good continuity of machine availability over the
last 14 years, and even just had a release this week :-)
There's probably a bigger, more active, project that depends on Boehm GC,
but we're here and (speaking only for myself at the moment) available.
