A few pages at Meta-Wiki (and possibly wikimediafoundation.org) will need to
be updated to reflect this change. Adding a hatnote to the foundation-l
archives and listinfo pages would be nice, too. Anything to reduce the
inevitable confusion that will accompany this change.

One other thing to think about while you're making larger adjustments: it's
possible to customize the listinfo page to not be so ghastly. For example,
compare <https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikien-l> with
<https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/foundation-l>. Perhaps one of
the designers can work on making the new wikimedia-l listinfo page less ugly
and off-putting?
