It is not that strange: The hostname "lists.kde.org" is an alias for
"marc.info". The actual content is on marc.info but we provide an alternative
way to access it. If you replace any "lists.kde.org" URL by "marc.info" then
it will still work.
If you take a look at http://lists.kde.org/robots.txt then it is obvious that
every spider but Google(bot) is banned. Not that it will stop the bad guys...
