I missed the beginning of this thread, but if you are looking for a good
place to run the mailing list and have a Wiki plus file store, calendar,
database, etc. (and can integrate with GitHub for source code projects) --
I have been doing quite a bit on Groups.io

I created a group if people want to try it out.
https://amateur-radio.groups.io/g/aprssig  -- subscribe, the first few
messages from an individual are moderated.  I have currently set the Wiki
to subscribers can edit and that it is publicly visible.

If the list wants to do more with the group I created, I will extend
moderator status to a core team. Or an entirely new group could be created
that is not a child of amateur-radio

Here is an active wiki on one of the groups
https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/udrc/wiki

The Wiki has a gui editor or you can use markup -- it is not as rich as
some, but pretty sufficient.
