I do not know. Splitting the discussion list might make it difficult to
follow the discussions around erlang.

We have some experience with running Sympa for several projects on our
server (Erlang-projects). It is an handy, robust tool with a web admin
interface (User friendly).
We can host such a list on Erlang-projects.

This could be an idea. Another solution that I thought about was mixing
forum things with an NNTP back-end. Old school users can use a news
reader to follow Erlang discussion. They could be publish in a forum
like interface on the web, where authenticated user could contribute.
I am think about writing that with Yaws (Web client for NNTP).
