Mailman was getting a bit long in the tooth and some of these improvements look compelling, like the web front-ends that give easy access to archives and such. There's a lot to be said for mailing lists as communication vehicles. They have all the benefits of Usenet with more finegrained controls and the ability of each user to choose the mail reader s/he likes best, etc. There's also a decent sense of community on mailing lists - all a good thing. Glad to see Mailman is keeping it fresh. I'll be interested in checking this out.

What ever happened to mayordomo, by the way? Remember when people talked about being on LISTSERVs? That word has gone the way of Telnet and FTP - gone to all but the crustiest of greybeards and server admins.

LWN had a brief review of Mailman/HyperKitty a few weeks ago here: #5XX6
