Mantisbt.org recommended this: http://www.a2hosting.com/mantis-hosting
It seems to support mailman, but I'm not sure on what plan, etc.

Google Groups doesn't provide an export function that I can see.
There is no escape.

For me, SF would cover our needs for zero upkeep.  The only problem
is that their bug tracker isn't Mantis and can be kind of slow.
Perhaps we can host Mantis on Paul's VPS, and everything else on SF?

Note: SF mailing lists come with about six lines of advertising at
the bottom of each email.
