JohnLewis added a comment to T111054: wikisk-l: Give the list an administrator.

Looking at the issue, @KuboF seems to suggests [gtranslate] the list is not in active use and that he also has no time to manage the list if he was given it. As such, given no real community interest - I'm going to close the list. It can be reopened at any time if someone is interested in managing the list however.

JohnLewis added a comment to T117034: Move tendril to a VM.

It handles *very private data*, it should be part of the production network. I think there is not infrastructure there yet handling VMs. Because of firewall and network restrictions, it could not even possible now. If there is something that will be implemented on production, it will be containers, not VMs.

Production already has virtualisation with VMs, it's Ganeti. To put it into perspective it runs several production sites and 'key' infrastructure as well like the mail servers (mx*). They're treated like production hardware in theory so firewall is not an issue at all.

JohnLewis closed T59246: Provide mbox archives and add missing lists to Gmane as Declined.

The point still stands however that forcing an opt-in is inappropriate. We're not in a place to judge whether or not a lists archives should (at this stage now) forcibly put into Gmane. Plus considering the number of lists being 100, it is neither worth the time unless a list individually requests it.
