I’m not aware of one. May be comp.arch comes close. Any new list
will have difficulty attracting the right kind of people. TUHS, COFF are
rather unix oriented. If you mean *software systems*, I suspect the
field is still too green to have a proper systematic analysis or
established engineering principles. We still seem to be in the “Cambrian
explosion” phase where every new complex system is a new species.
