Mailman 2.1.17

Since the release of Mailman 2.1.16 last month, there have been some
i18n updates, a new feature affecting which headers are kept in posts to
anonymous lists and a few bug fixes.

One of these bugs was introduced in 2.1.16 and is fairly serious
although it only affects lists with defined topics. See
<https://launchpad.net/bugs/1251495>. For this reason, I plan to release
Mailman 2.1.17 in about a week. If there are any i18n changes or other
things that should go in 2.1.17, please get them to me before next weekend.

ANN: wiki.list.org migrations

Hello everyone,

I want to mention a few things related to wiki.list.org.

First and most immediately, our currently wiki hosting provider Contegix, is
in the process of a major infrastructure update which will cause some downtime
for wiki.list.org.  Contegix has been hosting our wiki gratis for several
years, for which we are very grateful.  Their support over the years has been
superb.

Unfortunately, the infrastructure our wiki is hosted on is quite legacy, and
in fact, we are the last organization to be hosted on it.  The time has come
to for them to retire it, but they have again graciously offered to continue
hosting our wiki gratis on their new infrastructure.  The migration process is
tricky, since we have to coordinate with Contegix's timing and our DNS changes
with John Viega (Mailman's original author and owner of the list.org domain).
Please be aware that the wiki may experience some downtime as both DNS and the
instance get shuffled around.

As some of you know, Paul Boddie has been working diligently on migrating our
current Atlassian Confluence wiki to Moin.  While Confluence has served us
well over the years, we recognize that it is inappropriate for a GNU project
such as Mailman to utilize a non-free wiki.  Moin is our current choice for a
free software wiki hosting platform, and Paul has done an amazing job on the
migration, as anyone who reads mailman-developers can see.  That work is
close, but not quite ready for production.  Stay tuned for more announcements
on that front, or join mailman-developers for more information, or if you'd
like to pitch in to help.

We will send another announcement when the Contegix transfer is complete.  In

Mailman 2.1.16 release.

FYI, I will be releasing 2.1.16rc1 in a few days with a target of a
final release in early September.

I believe the release will be very solid and stable. The main purpose of
the candidate release is to expose any i18n changes so that translators
can submit any updates and get them in the final release. There are a
few new features, contributed programs, i18n changes and bug fixes, all
of which will be announced when the candidate is released.

list.org upgrade

Quick heads up that the owners of the list.org domain will be upgrading the
machine today.  This should only affect www.list.org and perhaps email
 <at> list.org.  It will not affect the wiki or the mailing lists.

The downtime should be minimal and the IP addresses will remain the same after
the upgrade.

In the meantime, you can always use the various www mirrors:

 * http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/index.html
 * http://mirror.list.org/
 * http://mailman.sourceforge.net/

Cheers,
-Barry

    Sometimes we freeze until the light comes

I'm happy to announce the second beta release of Mailman 3.0, code named

the database schema and REST API.  From here on out, there should be no more
major changes or new features, just bug fixes leading to the 3.0 final
release.

Fw: [Mailman-Developers] Congratulations to our GSoC Students!

Congratulations to our new GSoC students!

Begin forwarded message:

Date: Wed, 25 Apr 2012 19:57:51 -0600
From: Terri Oda <terri <at> zone12.com>
To: mailman-developers <at> python.org, sophron <at> latthi.com,  Aamir Khan <syst3m.w0rm <at> gmail.com>, alexander <at> sulfrian.net
Subject: [Mailman-Developers] Congratulations to our GSoC Students!

The announcement from Google went out on Monday, so I'm a bit slow, but I'd like to congratulate the three
students who will be working with GNU Mailman as part of Google Summer of Code 2012:

Aamir Khan will be working on improving Hyperkitty.

Alexander Sulfrian will be working on NNTP access to the archives.

George Chatzisofroniou will be working on metrics, integrating his MailmanStats package with Mailman 3.0.

Congratulations to all of you, and thank you to all our other talented applicants this year.    It was a very
tough field and we were very lucky to get three slots allocated to us by our umbrella organization, the
Python Software Foundation.  I believe this is the largest number of students we've ever had!

We're now in what Google calls the "community bonding period" where we get to know each other and get things
set up.   Students: this would be a great time to post a short email to mailman-developers reminding
everyone about what you're planning to do this summer (Google only gives the short abstract in their
public list).  I know the mentors are pretty excited about the projects, and this gives everyone else a
chance to get excited too!

Coding starts on May 21st.  So be prepared: this is going to be one amazing year for Mailman!

I18n help needed for Mailman 2.1.15 release.

Now that Mailman 3 is in beta, I would like to spend more time working
on it. To that end, I am planning to release Mailman 2.1.15 soon. This
release fixes quite a few bugs and adds some needed new features. See
the NEWS file at
<http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~mailman-coders/mailman/2.1/view/head:/NEWS> for
details.

This release contains several new message strings and a template
modification, none of which have been translated. So, if you are a
language champion or just an interested user or anything between, I need
your help.

There is a new feature to request a password reminder from the private
archive login page. This necessitated an addition to
templates/<language>/private.html. I have added the new information to
all the templates, but it is in English. If you can help translate this
into your language, get the private.html template from your language
directory at
<http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~mailman-coders/mailman/2.1/files/head:/templates/>,
and send me a translated template.

Also, all the message catalogs have been merged from the new mailman.pot
and there are fuzzy translations and untranslated strings as a result.
If you can help with fixing these, get the current
LC_MESSAGES/mailman.po file from your language directory at
<http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~mailman-coders/mailman/2.1/files/head:/messages/>
and send me an updated version.

If you can help with this, please do it before the end of April. If you
want to help but aren't sure what to do, let me know and I'll try to

RELEASED: GNU Mailman 3.0 beta 1 and Postorius 1.0 alpha 1

Hello Mailman enthusiasts!

    Use the key, unlock the door
    See what your fate might have in store...

Building on the excitement and amazing progress at our sprints at Pycon 2012,
I am very happy to announce the availability of GNU Mailman 3.0 beta 1, code
named "The Twilight Zone".

After nearly four years of design, discussion, and development, we can now see
a clear path to a final release.  I thank everyone who has helped us get here,
by participating on the mailman-developers mailing list, the bug tracker, in
private conversations, and code contributions, both to Mailman itself and all
the great projects it builds on.  Special thanks go to our recent sprinters,
Andrea Crotti, Florian Fuchs, Toshio Kuratomi, Daniel Mizyrycki, Terri Oda,
Mark Sapiro, and Stephen Turnbull.

While you do want to be careful using 3.0b1 in production, I hope that you
will get a copy of the code and run it through its paces.  Several people are
known to be running real mailing lists using the code base.  At this point,
the feature set is frozen, as is the database schema.  We'll use the schema
migration machinery to do any schema changes from here to the final release.

I'm also ecstatic to announce the first alpha release of Postorius, our new
official name for the Django-based Mailman 3 web user interface.  The name was
suggested by core developer Florian Fuchs in honor of a bass hero of both of
ours, Jaco Pastorius.  Postorius 1.0 alpha 1 is code named "Space Farm".

Postorius is in large part based on the great work of Anna Senarclens de
Grancy and Benedict Stein who worked on a new Mailman web ui during their
