Clutch does not generate that file. It is handled by the Incubator

You are striking the same type of problems that Clutch has
needed to deal with over the years. In general, the state of
podling metadata is not reliable. That is something that we
need to get podling developers interested with.

So Clutch makes educated guesses about the podling mail lists.
When it sees that its mbox files are flowing (they could be
not yet established or held up waiting for initial moderation)
then it writes their dev list address into the report_due_[1-3].txt
files for 'marvin' to utilise
(see http://incubator.apache.org/clutch.html#data)
and puts "hasMailListDev" into clutch.pkl for the mod_mbox URL.
With the latter, if the name starts with "incubator-"
then that is an "old-style" list.
