I can't speak to Mailman but I'll speak up for ezmlm.

It hasn't been updated for years because it was well written and it just 
works.  No bugs have been found that would require changes to the code.

I set up qmail with ezmlm for a completely non-technical type and he 
took to it like a duck to water.  It allowed him to control all aspects 
of the list with nothing more than a mail client.  In all these years it 
has never crashed or required any maintenance whatsoever.

No reason to shoot a good horse :)
