OK, thanks for your clarification.

IMHO every project had the freedom to create (or at least request) MLs. 
Therefore we had some hundreds of lists where most aren't really necessary.

Someone here wrote that it's better to have less lists with more 
subscribers to strengthen the community instead of having many lists but 
only with a few subscribers. I like this attitude; even when this means 
that some threads are not interesting for all and therefore engaged only 
by specific people.
