In this particular case, it's about lack of time to maintain such lists.

We have been incapable of pushing the idea of paying for
CI services forward for year+, where money is no issue, I hear,
that would impose zero maintenance cost on Boost folks.
And, you are proposing to set up a new piece of infrastructure,
with accounts, security, that will also require moderation, etc.
Although I really like the idea, I can't see it feasible.

The mailman offers very usable access interfaces to all the archived
reviews and related (public) discussions, it just takes time and clicking.
