but add new mailing lists to it periodically.

My understanding (which could be completely wrong ;) is that Jyve would need
to be installed and managed at the ASF to provide the same kind of
functionality. That means it has infrastructure requirements - hardware,
software and especially people to maintain it. That being the case, I'd want
to see a compelling case for Jyve over Nabble, and names of people willing
to do the work.
