Feedback comments/greatly appreciated: http://public-inbox.org/

I'm importing the unicorn ML archives, now, so all of our future
emails will be archived with this.

If needed, there'll be an SMTP replayer to do push delivery like a
normal mailing list, but anybody may also run the delivery-only
service, too.

AFAIK, we don't have many ML subscribers anyways, and VERP seems
reasonable...

HTML archives: http://bogomips.org/unicorn-public/
(an ugly work-in-progress, but all the data is there,
 bikeshed with pretty gooeys to your content :)

Or once you have ssoma[1] installed:

	URL=git://bogomips.org/unicorn-public
	ssoma add unicorn $URL mbox:/tmp/mbox
	ssoma sync unicorn
	mutt -f /tmp/mbox
	# of course, any mailer will do, and IMAP is supported, too

We only have a few days left before this list goes away.

I'm still not sure if I want to run one; if I did, I might would take
the drastic step of making the subscribers list public so anybody may
takeover the distribution list[1].

Right now only I (and Rubyforge admins) have access to the subscribers
list on RubyForge, (but I hate website logins, so I never look at it
:P).  I don't feel like anybody should have the exclusive privilege of
knowing who subscribes to a list.

I may also run a read-only NNTP server (not sure how to enforce
a Cc:-all workflow if posting were allowed).

I do get a lot of rubyforge bounce messages from spam bots attempting to
subscribe (and I think some of them succeed, even).  So maybe attempting
to do SMTP delivery isn't worth it with public-inbox...


[1] Obviously I know it'd be easy for spammers to harvest lurker
    this way, but they already harvest addresses from every poster.
    I suspect most folks on ML have decent spam filters these days.
    (and if you don't, I use and recommend SpamAssassin)

I should clarify: I won't publish nor import the current
subscribers list.
