It would create a new “Mailman Archive” category to hold a sub-category for each of these lists. Nobody could post there from discuss; you would need to send it using your old fashioned e-mail client, like pine or similar.

Additionally, it could be seeded using the existing history from this here import tool: https://github.com/discourse/discourse/blob/master/script/import_scripts/mbox.rb

It’d let us forget about mailman, forever.

not discuss??

wait so would all list be preserved for historical reasons but only some available here?

I would prefer everything preserved. I fortell of a young, slightly boring seemingly young person, otherwise thoughtful, who shall mine these archives for a book one day.


#3

Turns out you can’t edit your vote after you click the wrong one.

They could all be preserved, if we want. Maybe just announce and/or discuss as a pilot?


#4

Comprehensive instructions here:

I believe it is possible to even add all of those people subscribed to the lists to discuss as regular users that get notifications and replies, instead of pseudo-fake ‘staged’ placeholder users. That raises all kinds of questions about consent, however.

from.a technical perspective, it would be best to raise an issue against the infrastructure repo to discuss with Rack.

as for.consent, send a bunch of emails over some period and have them sign up or something.

I think I will try and import the smallest list we have. I don’t know what that one is yet but maybe a proof of concept is needed to fully grasp the implications here so we can have a meaningful discussion on the repo
