> Now that the email package is standard in Python, I want to retire the
> (misnamed) mimelib project at SourceForge. I think this project has
> served us well, but it's time to move things back into the regular
> Python flow. To that end, I've essentially disabled as much of the
> public info for the project as possible.
> However, there's still work to be done, specifically on a version 3.0 of
> the API, which will buff off the last <wink> of the rough edges,
> integrate Anthony's new parser, etc. Sounds like a perfect mission for
> a SIG to me!
> So I'm proposing a formal email-sig at python.org. I've actually already
> created the mailing list, and unless there are no objections, I'd like
> to make this a formal SIG. We can't actually remove the mimelib-devel
> mailing list, but I suggest we all ignore it, except for archival
> I intend to be the SIG shepherd, along with Jason Mastaler (nice of me
> to volunteer you, eh? :). It's mission is to design and implement email
> package 3.0 in time for Python 2.4, fixing the things described above
> while maintaining backward compatibility if at all possible. I'd like
> for this SIG to expire the day Python 2.4 is released, but who knows
> when that will happen. :/ So let's say this SIG expires one year from
> now -- September 2004, with possible extensions as necessary.
> All in favor? All opposed?
