I can't comment on how to respond to an old mailing list since I haven't
tried that yet, but asking about a new project release should have been
as simple as either entering your email on the website or sending an
email to password-store+subscribe at (the +(un)subscribe part
should work for most mailing lists) and then sending an email with the
question to the password-store at ... email.
