Well, I suggest you wait and see what Lyle does.

Not sure why you think that is what has happened. Oh, actually perhaps
I can. Lyle says above "Got mailman setup today". What he means is
that he's been given the admin password to both of the existing
mailman mailing lists (and the web sites).
This is all happening within the existing pm.org infrastructure. This
kind of stuff goes on all of the time. Nothing at all to worry about.
