That is odd.  On my end, all three of the messages you sent looked to be 
complete, multi-line messages in my inbox.  But in the mailman archive 
all 3 are truncated.  I think mailman might be choking on the ">From " 
at the start of the second paragraph, which it might be taking as the 
start of another message.  The ">" is usually added to lines that start 
with "From " in the body of the message to prevent the line from being 
seen as the start of a new message in "mbox" format mailboxes, so if 
mailman can't cope with that, it's a bit of a problem.

As for the Raspberry Pi, considering they underestimated demand by a 
factor between 100 and 1000, they did a remarkable job of scaling up!
