Hi Folks,

I'm thinking of upgrading my current list software - from majordomo to one
of majordomo2, mailman, or sympa.

Each of them seems to have some serious features above-and-beyond
majordomo1, but I get the sense that each has its problems as well - I see
lots of bugs go by on the mailman users list, and it seems like
development is moving slowly on all three.

Can anybody offer some opinions as to the reliability, maturity, and
longer-term viability of each.  Are there any other packages I should be
looking at?
