It's OK for everyone who is still subscribed to that ML. But not 
everyone who wants to participate is already subscribed.

Not a good solution in the case of spam. They would get an answer, know 
that it's a valid address and start mass spamming.

E.g., I'm still managing the dev@distribution.oo.o and 
mirrors@distribution.oo.o ML and 99% is spam (up to 20 per day).

It seems that #1 is the best way for the moment as long as the old ML 
are still working. But maybe together with a note. Then the possible new 
participant 1) gets an (first) answer, #2 knows that it goes on at ASF, 
and #3 knows the new ML.

My 2 ct.
