[fedora-virt] Do we need the Fedora 'virt' mailing list?

The virt list has long been in an odd place.  Fedora has best in class
virt support, because so many virt developers use it.  It also follows
upstream very closely, with upstream packages like libvirt and qemu
going straight into Rawhide without any significant patching.

So there isn't really much need for a Fedora+virt-specific list, since
almost any question should go upstream to one of the following lists:

 - https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/virt-tools-list
 - https://libvirt.org/contact.html#email
 - http://wiki.qemu.org/MailingLists
 - https://libosinfo.org/communicate/
 - https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/libguestfs

Or as a last resort if it really is a rare virt integration issue that
only affects to Fedora, then:

 - https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/users
 - https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/devel

Can we kill the virt list?

software inside the virtual machine.  Supports Linux and Windows.
