Dear Mailman Users:
My name is Martin Streicher, and I am the Editor for Open Source books at Apress (http://www.apress.com). I am considering publishing a book on Mailman and would like to hear your opinions.
Briefly, the book would be very focused on Mailman, would be about 150-200 pages, and would sell for less than $20. The book would be very hands-on, something you would keep in your lap and work through as you installed and configured Mailman with the MTA and web browser of your choice. Then the book would switch to a problem-solution section, useful for when you are troubleshooting or adding features to your configuration, or trying to help users manage their Mailman accounts.
1/ Is such a book needed, and what is it's potential?
2/ If it is needed, what information should it include? What problems come up time and again?
3/ Should it only be about Mailman, or should it include ezmlm, Mailman, and Majordomo?
4/ Finally, what other topics in system administration might fit this format -- short, project-oriented, solutions -- well?
Thanks for your consideration and I look forward to your replies. Please send replies to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will post a summary of all replies so as to share the info, but not clutter the list in the interim.
