Your problem was a bit of a challenge, so I found a solution.
Of course, if sysadmin would make changes allowing you to forward to the 
list, that would be easier for you, but more complicated for sysadmin.

Gmail (like many other email providers) allows forwarding email received.
But you can only forward to adresses that can respond, which excludes 
forwarding to mailing lists.
Gmail allows you to forward to more than one adresse, and even to filter 
which emails you wish to forward.

So I suggest:
1) Create a new gmail account that is easy to type, something like 
mga-zh_tw at gmail.com
You could use an existing account, but a dedicated account would be 
easier to manage.

2) On your new gmail account, under email parameters -> Transfers and 
POP/IMAP, in the section Transfers, add all the email adresses of those 
in your group.
Gmail lets you can add filters, so you could filter all email not coming 
from Mageia to not forward spam.
But you might instead want to use this new adresse to communicate 
between members of your group.

3) You use this new account for CC's to your group.

The down side is that each member you forward to has to accept before 
emails will be sent to them, and for each new member, you have to 
remember to add their email adresse.
But at least it will work, and you can implement it right away.

Regards :-)
