ML and forum are the last 2 pieces of the OWRT infrastructure that were not moved during the LEDE reboot. I would propose that we ask David Woodhouse to setup a openwrt-devel ML on the old DNS/names. Reap our inboxes for a list of anyone that has ever sent an email to the old ML and send them an automated invite for the new list. If we do manage to get a backup of the old subscription list we can merge the missing ones later and possibly import the archive.

If the conclusion is that a few eggs are broken, then so be it, but let’s get this thing over & done.
