To test this, I created test(at)lists(dot)decibel(dot)org
http://lists.decibel.org/mailman/listinfo/test

In postfix, I setup the following in main.cf:
virtual_alias_maps = hash:/usr/local/etc/postfix/virtuals/virtual,
                    ....
                        regexp:/usr/local/etc/postfix/virtuals-regex/decibel.org,

where virtuals-regex/decibel.org contains:

# commands
/^(test)-(post|admin|bounces|confirm|join|leave|owner|request|subscribe|unsubscribe)@nasby.net$/ mailman-$2+$1

# lists (command -post)
/^(test)@nasby.net$/ mailman-post+$1

(yeah, I flubbed the file name... oh well...)

I can now post, subscribe, or issue any commands by sending email to
test(at)nasby(dot)net  or test-blah(at)nasby(dot)net(dot)

Feel free to subscribe and test for yourself. While this forwarding
implimentation is obviously postfix-specific, the point is that as long
as the email eventually makes it to the proper list addresses, that's
all that mailman cares about.

So, is there a formal project setup anywhere for the migration? ISTM
that it would be best to create a project on either gborg or pgfoundry
with the intention that it produce a set of code/scripts/procedures that
allow for migrating projects from gborg to pgfoundry, since obviously
moving lists over is a minor portion of the effort.
