I shifted the mailing lists to 'Internally-managed services', and then
amended the bit below about "all services that are managed internally
are run on services devoted to the OpenWrt project".

I don't consider the mailing lists to actually *cost* anything. I was
running mailman lists for a bunch of open source projects long before
we moved the OpenWrt lists there.
