The prblem's gone away for me now. I took the entry out of /etc/hosts and
it all works, including lists.ardour.org. ( if you're still
having problems)

FYI - the way to find out what's going on when a domain doesn't work is:
whois ardour.org
gwhois ardour.org (my Debian system prefers "gwhois")

That will tell you the nameservers for the domain. 
(in this case ns1.deramhost.com, ns2..., ns3...)
You should be able to get the IP addres from them:
host ardour.org ns1.dreamhost.com

If either of those steps doesn't work the domain is broken (fsvo
"broken"). This can happen temporarily if the domain gets moved from one
registrar or primary nameserver to another.
