I've been subscribed to linux-arm@vger since its creation in case anyone
was posting (though it seems that technically wasn't possible) and I'm
happy to reply to questions there.

Personally, I'm more in favour of open lists as I don't see any
advantage in having a moderated one. As for linux-arm@vger, if people
(cross-)post ARM specific patches and the ARM gatekeeper is not
subscribed, they could be lost unless other subscribers forward them to
you or the lak list (or your patch system).

An option would be to subscribe lak to linux-arm@vger so that messages
are directed to lak as well and maybe add an exception to not moderate
those coming via linux-arm@vger.

Anyway, if you (as gatekeeper) do not want to have anything to do with
the linux-arm@vger list (IOW "moderated list" zealot ;-)) I don't see
much point in updating the "ARM PORT" entry in the MAINTAINERS.

For the other ARM MAINTAINERS entries (e.g. specific boards), it is up
to the corresponding maintainers to add whatever lists they want, which
may include linux-arm@vger.
