The issue is that something in postfix on collab1 (where the
lists.fedoraproject.org mailing lists run) and/or bastion (which
serves as a central mail gateway) is rewriting
"<mailinglist>@lists.fedoraproject.org" addresses in the message
headers to "<mailinglist>@fedoraproject.org". When someone then tries
to reply to a mailing list post the message is bounced as
"<mailinglist>@fedoraproject.org" is an invalid address.  I don't have
enough postfix-fu to fix the problem and no one with enough postfix-fu
has had the time, access, and/or interest in fixing the problem.

Until this problem is fixed I've been hesitant to create any (more)
lists.fedoraproject.org mailing lists.

lists.fedorahosted.org has a similar problem, except that
"<mailinglist>@fedorahosted.org" works due to some quirks of how
postfix interprets email addresses (AFAIK without a some hackery
postfix can't treat "@lists.<domain>" differently from "@<domain>").
