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.
