Merge branch 'mailman3doc' into 'master'

Adding Explanation of Mailman Suite

Judging from the questions I've been getting on IRC and elsewhere, people are going to list.org and then being totally confused about how to get and setup mailman suite.  I've put some explanation on the download page for now to help guide people in the right direction.  (This probably speaks to needing to refactor the website some, but I think this is the right short-term solution)

- `Launchpad <http://launchpad.net/mailman>`__
- `GNU <http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/mailman/>`__
Mailman 3.0 is available from the `Python Package Index (PyPI) <https://pypi.python.org/pypi?%3Aaction=search&term=mailman&submit=search>`__.
*Note: the GNU ftp site may lag behind Launchpad, especially just after
a release announcement. It often takes a little while for the GNU ftp
site to catch up.*
Mailman 3.0 is available from the `Python Package Index (PyPI) <https://pypi.python.org/pypi?%3Aaction=search&term=mailman&submit=search>`__.
Mailman 3.0 has been split into a suite of related components. The easiest
way to get them and install them all is to use `mailman bundler
<https://gitlab.com/mailman/mailman-bundler/>`__ and follow the instructions
that come with it.
Here's a list of the names of the Mailman 3.0 components:
- *Mailman Suite* refers to the collection of related Mailman projects that provide all the pieces of a typical mailing list management setup.
- *Mailman Core* is the part that delivers the emails and handles the mailing list and user data
- *Postorius* is the web interface that allows users (list members, list admins, moderators) to change their user settings and the settings for their lists.
- *HyperKitty* is the archiver which provides a web interface to access GNU Mailman v3 archives as well as ways interact with the lists. It can behave a little like a web forum, for those who prefer not to use email.
- *MailmanClient* is the library that provides official Python bindings for the GNU Mailman 3 REST API. This allows you to write your own front end or scripts for interacting with Mailman. (It's also what Postorius uses to interact with Mailman Core.)
- *Mailman Bundler* is a tool to help you install all of Mailman Suite via PyPI
