Hello,

one not so obvious thing is that in the wild, the overwhelming
majority of projects uses mailman2. mailman3 is a complete rewrite with
a different user interface. It's best to treat them as separate
projects when evaluating a solution.

Regarding alternatives that haven't been mentioned yet, Sourcehut does
provide (among other things), a mailing list service [1]_. It should
hopefully be easier to set up than mailman3.
