hi all =) emooo onefang.
i'm following the discussion with interest but i can't speak since i lack knowloedge and i'm just a translator.
anyway i'm popping in to reply/tell to onefang that there's a forum board that integrates mailing lists as well.
all automagically. that is FUDForum. http://fudforum.org
cat fudforum-feature | grep mailing-lists:
"NNTP & Mailing List integration, allowing FUDforum to be used to
archive newsgroups & mailing lists, as well as allow forum members
to post messages to newsgroups and mailing lists via the forum."
i don't know nothing about this forum board sorry and i'm not telling to use it, i just remembered that it has this feature.
my humble two cents.
