IMO, this should be done as a matter of course during the podling (for
those that left), and for mentors just at their own discretion (their
entitled as members to be subscribed to the list if they wish to
continue to be)

I think these are both left up to the project intentionally (since
every project can be different), and it's one of the reasons people in
the project have enough admin privileges to change them. From what I
understand of the TLP request - it's really to get the things done
that only infra can do (and to leave everything in a consistent state
- eg mails to the old lists from other systems still work). It's worth
documenting this in the instructions, perhaps linking to some docs
about administering confluence etc., but probably not making it part
of the (already long) TLP request.

I'll second that, having just been a part of 2 myself (even though
they weren't from the incubator, the list was still helpful).

Cheers,
Brett
