Good point. I'll do that.

We don't care about the list count so I'll probably go with this. We
really have 3 pretty distinct types of traffic here so we should just
separate them properly.

I did see Daniel's reply about only having one list, but I feel that we
should have a list for discussion. We also definitively need a list for
Arch Linux staff to reach all mirror admins so 3 lists seems like the
best way to go.

I'll also get rid of this footer because it is really annoying and none
of our other lists have it. It also breaks DKIM signatures and I also
think about dropping the subject prefix for this reason. That discussion
will happen at a later date though.
