This issue can be easily solved by adding a custom property:

  (gnome:development-list, rdfs:subPropertyOf, doap:mailing-list)

This property then serves as a "specialization" of doap:mailing-list.

Things like "first mentioned" is not going to work in RDF---the description
is unordered after parsing (and serialization may print it in any order).
