I now have a simple CGI server. Takes CGI style arguments, emits a page back to the browser, working with nginx.

Now I need to lash up the database stuff to actually run an announcement list.

It’s not going to be a fully-fledged mailing list (at least not to start with) as I’d need to mess about with the SMTP/POP servers and be able to read mail and that’s like having your brains slowly pulverized with a million tiny hammers; rather, it’ll be an announcement list (just a descriptive phrase I’m using here) where you can receive email from liblfds (bug reports, new releases) and where I can when necessary send out the odd functionality/design question – all replies to it will come to the liblfds admin email addy, rather than to everyone on the list.
