No, bn is the *language* code for Bengali (India/Bangladesh), not a
country code.

Additionally, and just to add to the confusion, the list is indexed as ZH-HAN in the list of 
local lists.

Do you have a URL at hand? If it is listed as chinese, then it is a
mistake, as it is not chinese. - ant it should be hans and hant - not
just "han"

You're right, it is hans.  Or rather, zh-hans, and I have always associated zh with different 
forms of Chinese.  The information is in Chinese.

Yes, it is zh-hans is simplified form, zh-hant is traditional form.

OK, that is just the list of available mailinglists in chinese
language, it is not a list of mailinglists with zh-hans (chinese
simplified) as content language.

And under that all the instructions are in Chinese: 用户支持

       * 汇总版订阅
       * 存档:

Yes, but the heading over the bn-section reads:
Which is "Bengali" written in chinese.

Notice that the addresses begin with bn.  Don't know what's on the other end if you subscribe 
there, as I haven't gone that far yet.

See above. it is a listing of all mailinglists that exist for the
various language projects, it is not a listing of all lists that
"belong" to the Chinese project.
