Hmmm, how about trying a hack based upon my other suggestion?

The hack would be to create a new github account, using the mailing
list's email address as the account email address. Then, log in to that
account, and 'watch' the emacs-w3m/emacs-w3m project. A potential
problem with this idea might be that github might end up sending other
maintenance and administrative emails; that should be able to be
filtered out by only allowing email from github.com when it includes the
string "emacs-w3m".
