The [slim] subject prefix caused my mail rules a problem because they
are currently triggering off [slimp3-users]. No problem, easy to fix,
and I now use the To: address to trigger my rules. [slim] seems a bit
too generic to me, though. Discuss what? Maybe [slimp3-discuss]? Or why
not keep [slimp3-users]?

That very minor gripe aside, well done for kicking the Yahoo addiction.
This is a bold move that I would like to see many more vendors make. We
are all way too dependent on Yahoo and their ever more intrusive spam
content surpassed my tolerance level a long time ago.

Good luck with the new mailing lists.

Instead of filtering by the To: header, try filtering by the List-Id: header

List-Id: SLIMP3 Discussion <discuss.lists.slimdevices.com>

This way you don't have to worry about when people Cc or Bcc the list.
