Yes, the lists are down for a long time. I've contacted
John around 4 months ago but I think he is very busy with
other things.

I have received several emails from people asking if
wmaker was dead again, it is a pity.

Unless John shows signs of life again we should consider
moving the lists somewhere else. Maybe there is a way to
host them at google? I've seen other development lists
there, eg!forum/sage-devel

Does anyone have experience with google groups?

Best regards,
