This is true.

You might put kde-quality (the list) as the contact person on those web pages, 
but basically the whole idea of kde-quality as a forum for new contributors to 
make a small mark and to do the last-mile polishing that KDE needs .. that 
idea failed. It's been partly taken over by distro's and the KDE forum, which 
works well now (it didn't when KDE-quality was set up).

For the past three years, I think, kde-quality (the list) has been used more 
for the tools KDE uses for quality control (e.g. the EBN) and sporadic bug 
reports than anything else.

I'd be ok to kill both the list and the site, since they're historical
