For the mailing list, why not use Google Groups?  I've used that for
several other collaborations.  It's free and easy to use and keeps
history.  Also it does a nice job preventing spam and "out-of-office"
replies and is really easy to use.  I think it also digitally signs
(DKIM) messages to aid delivery (so mails are not marked as spam).  It
has good sign-up/leave tools as well and various permissions for how
public messages are and for hiding email addresses from the public:

I don't know the history of this project, but I don't see Sourceforge
in your list of options for hosting.  For any open source project,
they host free source control, a wiki, a bug tracking system, forums,
and a download section.  I've used it to collaborate on other projects
and it worked great.

I'll gladly set up either one if people are interested.
