I'm not sure if qemu's current list hosting (@nongnu.org, run by FSF) is
available, but it does a lot better at spam management.  Also, qemu
recently aligned with the Software Freedom Conservancy

and as such may have advice on how to migrate canonical management of a
project.  Since qemu is one of the NBD implementations, there's at least
a relationship to consider.
