Let's keep the two things separate: There's Pony Mail, and then there's which is a specific installation of it.

In the specific agreement we have about, we wanted the 
'.incubator' part of the mailing list IDs stripped, so we wouldn't have 
to fix that every single time on graduation - it would just work when 
projects became TLPs.

I realize this poses an issue with the subscribe button, but it's 
something we (infra) are willing to live with for the time being, if it 
means less overall work for an understaffed infra team.

We could, as I said on the JIRA ticket you raised, have 
$ be a valid MX record from the beginning, but I'm 
sure someone on this list will protest ;-)

So, in a way, we're caught between what's practical and what's proper.

With regards,
