It is mentioned in the email headers.  Looking at this email, for
example, I see the following header:

    List-Help: <mailto:cygwin-help@cygwin.com>, <http://sourceware.org/ml/#faqs>

Alternatively, as cgf has already mentioned,
<http://cygwin.com/lists.html> states "If you have *any* questions or
problems with the mailing lists, see the Sourceware mailing list FAQs"
with a link to that same Sourceware page.  And that page includes the
following:
