The move is now finished and the new list can be found here:

Old links are redirected for the forseeable future, but probably not
forever, so you might want to update any blogposts or such linking to
the archives.

The moderation flag has been lifted, so you can post again.

The main caveat with the migration was that the member migration was
somewhat lossy, in various regards:

- The member list is based on the export I got on Monday, with people
  who subscribed since then added by hand. I haven't seen any
  unsubscribes, but if I accidentally resubscribed someone, apologies!

- As described before, mails which previously bounced off the list are
  now subscribed again. If this results in you getting double mails now,
  you are likely subscribed with multiple adresses and should
  unsubscribe one of them.

- Member passwords were not transferred. You can request your new
  auto-gererated password (in plaintext, in true Mailman 2 style...) at
  the bottom of the listinfo page listed above and change it, if desired.

- (!) Member options unfortunately couldn't be transferred either. If
  you e.g. prefer to get the mails in digest mode or had any other
  custom options set, you will need to set those again. Apologies for
  that, but given how the mailinglist is rather low-volume, I decided to
  not transfer all those over by hand.

Thanks to Schokokeks and JPBerlin for their cooperation with the move!

If you have any questions or something seems to be broken, please let me
