Oh wait, what? We're renaming one of the lists? We actually have 4 lists (https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo) with 3 of them still using the old naming scheme. Are you doing all of them?

This should probably be announced on the list itself because renaming lists breaks a lot of filters.

We can rename all three and regarding the announcement I for some reason though ladsgroup may poked the list(s). No worries, I'll send an email shortly to the lists.

Change 214694 had a related patch set uploaded (by John F. Lewis):
pywikipedia->pywikibot in mailman

Sorry for not making the notice in the mailing lists, I was traveling for a while, I reached my final destination five hours ago.

Anyway, I made the notice. Thank you

The rename of these lists has completed and should now function normally.

The e-mail list added as a subscriber to pywikibot bugs also needs to be renamed.

jayvdb added a subscriber: jayvdb.

Re-opening based on last comment, though I am not 100% sure what the problem is.

Technically no change is needed as the old mailing list emails email still works.

Changing the phabricator email needs an admin as far as I know so @Aklapper

@jayvdb: When you create a new bug request the -bugs mailing list gets added as a subscriber and that is currently using the old name. It may not be broken and maybe the old never will always work (at least as long as the new name works) and then it's not really a problem. But @Multichill asked that yesterday on the IRC and just wanted to mention here so it won't be forgotten.
