Personally, i don't see it as mistake. I think it's very logical that a mailing list and a chat room with the same purpose also have the same name.

It's actually a good thing to explicitly qualify mailing list or chat, for people who do not understand the special lingo. It avoids confusion.

So, all good :-)
