>> Bit of background:  There's been discussion off and on for years about upgrading Mailman, retiring mailman, moving to other, similar things, etc.  Due to a bunch of factors listed in the wiki page linked above, it has been decided that Mailman will be retired and any community group wanting to have a mail list will use Google Groups.  Some communities (like OWASP Zap) have been using Google Groups for years.  Some chapters who have moved to the Foundation's Meetup Pro account, no longer see a need for a mail list.  The choice is yours.

>> 
>> If you are a list owner, expect future correspondence about migrating your list to Google Groups  - I will directly contact the email addresses that are list owners.  The lists which will be migrated are shown at https://lists.owasp.org/mailman/listinfo (obviously that URL doesn't show private lists)
