At this point in time, I'd say yes.
FWIW, a little history.... many moons ago during development of the
Fedora Core 5 release, we created a fedora-xen(a)redhat.com mailing
list. Virtualization was all new and shiny and a total pain to actually
get running and develop against. So the fedora-xen mailing list was
useful to avoid deluging other mailing lists with Xen related topics.
Later when KVM came along, we created a fedora-virt mailing list, so
we didn't tie discussions just to Xen. These later moved from redhat.com
mailman. The xen(a)lists.fedoraproject.org mailing
list actually still exists too, and has even less traffic than virt one!
Fast-forward 10 years.... virtualization is mainstream, almost seemlessly
integrated in Fedora, pretty much everyone knows about it and can get
it working with little effort. Thus the original rationale for having the
Fedora virt mailing list has pretty much gone away IMHO. There's no reason
not to just use the main Fedora developer/user mailing lists, and/or the
appropriate project upstream lists at this point.
