Mailman supports customizable welcome messages for new subscribers,
so the *technical* implementation there is easy. I do think (and
failed to highlight it explicitly earlier I'm afraid) that this
proposal comes with an expectation that we provide recommended
guidelines for mailing list use/etiquette appropriate to our
community. It could be contained entirely within the welcome
message, or merely linked to a published document (and whether
that's best suited for the Infra Manual or New Contributor Guide or
somewhere else entirely is certainly up for debate), or even
potentially both.
