If the moderators of this mailing list are around, would they or
anyone else subscribed to the list be able to throw up some statistics

Admittedly, the list has been moribund for a long time, but I'm not
sure exactly when the tipping point was reached (most meta-discussion
seems to take place either on-wiki, at meta, or on the Wikimedia-l

what future this mailing list has.
