It was on-list but I prefer to keep the discussion open anyways :)

I don't know, but something like that should work. I think its not
too much asked of people to resubscribe, so my suggestion is to
simply disable the netfilter.org lists, generate a bounce message
and have people resubscribe. The amount of dead subscriptions seems
to be very high anyways, after only 10 hours of forwarding bounce
messages to my address I got around 6000 emails.
If there are no (reasonable) objections I'll try to reconfigure
mailman to do this tonight.
To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe netfilter-devel" in
the body of a message to majordomo [at] vger
