Create temporary test mailman mailing list to test synchronization with https://discourse.wmflabs.org/
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

A pilot installation of discourse is up and running at https://discourse.wmflabs.org/ to test if it can work as alternative for say wikimedia-l. Several people ask for synchronization between mailing list and discourse.

Synchronization has to be tested to prevent disruption of current threads.

A test mailing list could serve the purple of testing synchronization.

I guess this should be treated as a labs project request?

there is already a labs project, he's asking for a mailing list he can point at it to test syncronization instead of testing with a live list and annoying people.

Can it not be on a test mailing list in labs?

Any test mailman list will do which behaves technically the same as for example wikimedia-l.
