You are using ezmlm for this list (I hope it is ezmlm-idx, actually)?

1) ezmlm-idx has been in use at Apache for a long, long time, and is 
used to host many, very busy mailinglists over there. Much more than 50, 
actually, and I bet Apache does more smtp/list deliveries than Oasis.
2) ezmlm-idx provides with you with simple, but efficient remote 
administration capabilities that can be done through email. My take 
would be that some key people of this community are capable & willing to 
co-administer this list, not using 'the backend' (ha), but just by 
reading up on http://ezmlm.org/faq-0.40/FAQ-13.html and be added to 
DIR/modsub or DIR/modpost

I know ezmlm/qmail can be a pig to install and configure, but given some 
care, this combo should work out. Also, there's 
http://qmailtoaster.clikka.com/ which is helpful too.
