Yes, Drew has told me so privately (meanwhile, because of problems with our sysadmins locally, I did miss some threads in the discussion).
In any case. Personally I don't have a stake in Mailman. What I care is about the service and the usability of the system. If mimmm (which I do not know at all - I just hope it is not like SubEtha, with which I ended up having major problems after a few years) has a strict superset of the facilities of Mailman be it. My experience is that Mailman "just works". Other mailing list servers, weeeeellllll…..
I just notice that most mailing lists are not working (yet), that's all. It also appears that they are being fixed one by one on a per-request basis.
