Kernel.org seems to use majordomo: http://vger.kernel.org/

Here's a quick description of majordomo if you're too lazy to look it
up on its homepage (http://www.greatcircle.com/majordomo/):

Here's a short list of some of the features of Majordomo:

    * Supports various types of lists, including moderated
    * All list management activities are handled by email, so list
owners don't need access to Majordomo server machine
    * Supports archival and remote retrieval of messages
    * Supports digests
    * Modular design - use only the features you need
    * Written in Perl - easily customizable and expandable
    * Includes support for FTPMAIL
    * Supports confirmation of subscriptions, to protect against
forged subscription requests
    * List filters, based on header or body regular expressions
