Here is a much needed update on this project, migrate this list from
Launchpad to lists.openstack.org with all the others.  My apologies for
this project taking so long: it's a fairly complex project.

Paul Hummer volunteered to help. What needs to happen is to get from
Launchpad the list of subscribers and their email address +
configuration (the mailman pickle). Paul coordinated with the Launchpad
team at Canonical, got the pickle and tested it on lists.openstack.org.

Unfortunately after trying multiple times with different pickles the
process failed. He's escalated to Barry Warsaw, current mailman
maintainer and author of the integration with Launchpad to get his help.
We're waiting for his comments.

Should Barry give us a clean recipe to get from Launchpad the full list
of subscribers we're going to be able to close this list and move to
lists.openstack.org fairly easily.

If that's not going to work we need to start thinking of implementing
plan B, the one that has "blood and tears" in it.

We're keeping the steps on

I'll keep you posted with news as soon as I have them.
