I do not know about a mailing list.  The contact person may be myself.

The last CVS ChangeLog entry is:
2015-11-23 10:00  jkratoch
        * tests/bogus-echild.c:
        tests/bogus-echild.c: Fix env(TESTTIME) not to be multiplied by DEFAULT_TESTTIME.
          Make DEFAULT_TESTTIME unconditional.
          Remove DEFAULT_LOOPS support.
