Under active development at python.org, and has both e-mail and web interfaces. Somewhat limiting at times, so it's probably an aquired taste, but worth a shot. Numerous LUG's in the area are using it here in Denver, and they all seem relatively happy with it. I used it under Slink for a while and had no problems doing some short-term mailing lists for projects where we needed a group discussion list. www.mailman.org I believe also if I'm not mistaken will get you to their home page. It should be linked off of python.org somewhere too. My biggest complaint was a personal one, I don't know python so I couldn't tweak it! :) Any language that actually cares about whitespace somehow just bothers me a little bit... too much Perl in my blood I guess. -- Nate Duehr <firstname.lastname@example.org> GPG Key fingerprint = DCAF 2B9D CC9B 96FA 7A6D AAF4 2D61 77C5 7ECE C1D2 Public Key available upon request, or at wwwkeys.pgp.net and others.
