[Mailman-Developers] local TXT/HTML files
Fri, 25 Aug 2000 08:56:51 -0300
Good Day to all,
I'm new to mailman (a month) it's very interesting and I'm studing Python=
now to be able to work better with the software.
One thing that I have already done is made a soft link to all the=
templates/*txt and *.html files in a directory that I called=
local/SiteTemplates and for each list I made a local/<list_name> directory=
with soft links to local/SiteTemplates.
Doing this has enabled me to make a traduction of the most common txt=
files. As time goes by people who use computers know less english, not even=
some list administratators know english!
I have not made all the traductions but now I can have local traductions=
for all the message files and I'm able to have especific instructions for=
Of course my gratest problem has been that I have to modify the python files=
to point to ../local/<list_name>/<txt|html_file>
there's chicken/egg problem in bin/newlist (if there's no list how to point=
to local/<list_name> is that I create the local/<list_name> and the soft=
links if they don't exist so newlist will send=
local/SiteTemplates/newlist.txt because the soft link created points there=
and if I have already made a special newlist.txt for that list it must be=
Well, my suggestion is to implement something like this because the=
necessaty to have local txt/html files is world-wide, and to implement a=
local ~mailman/local directory that could be preserved (as mm_cfg.py)=
Thanks to all for your attention of forgive me for my limited english.
