All these points that you make apply to Discourse. Its client side seems entirely JS and doesn't work on an older phone and often won't load in WebKit-GTK. I'm able to read Fedora mailing lists on both of these and even in a text browser, so it means at least this drawback HyperKitty doesn't have.

Well one should search wikis and bugzilla before writing to a mailing list so they aren't really alternatives. IRC is, yes.
