I also do not see a reason to change it. I actualy think it makes more sense 
to set up some API to control it via typo3.org, which is of course possible. 
Sympa does not really look very mature and trustworthy like mailman, we do 
not feel comfortable with it. Of course, there are other opinions about it. 
But as long as my vote counts, we'd go for some interface to mailman and inn 
instead of switching to sympa. We'd have to get something going for Inn

Actually that is why it's great that typo3.org and .com domains are NOT 
hosted with us or anyone else beside Sune, who is only hosting those 
domains. So if anyone decides to take away hosting of something from 
someone, it can be done within minutes without really bothering about 
hosters not cooperating. And I for sure support this. It just doesn't make 
much sense nor is it save for TYPO3 itself.

And finally Sune made a good job. I think I've seen it twice that DNS didn't 
work for a short time, which Sune solved in no time.
